Yup, replant a few extras.
41 years a gardener and going strong with SFG.
There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

When ever you see signs of trouble, I put in a few more seeds, worst situation is that the original plants survive and thrive, and you have to do some thinnin :scratch:At what point do we give up and replant the missing ones?
You still have lots of time

Start the replacements off indoors in 2 or 3 inch pots and grow on with lots of TLC till sound , then plant out in the gaps when a week or so over " big enough to plant out " & water them in well .
If you cut just a few lettuce leaves every three or four days that one plant should last till the other are up and producing same goes for the spinach .
