Hey guys ... i have been trying to grow perpetual spinach from seed... these are like a month or so old... and they look a little sad .... I was wondering if there is anything that could be done to help these guys?

Early in their life I had them far away from light ... is that why they are stringy?

Yes!
Spinach needs full sun asap.
Harden off by increasing the early morning sun by at least an hour each day.
If a cloudy day occurs, leave them out all day but do watch out for bright intervals that will burn the tender leaves.
New shorter dark green leaves will grow from the crown base and the seedling will shed off those unproductive long leaves.
