This year, my father planted a lot of spinach in his garden, and I thought it would be a good idea to take care of at least some of the harvest. So we went there this morning and I was able to pick quite an amount. I wish we had better facilities to do the blanching, but with a little improvising it worked pretty well. What I find a bit frustrating about spinach is the fact that it shrinks so much - but at least it won't take so much space in the freezer!
