Spinach harvest

We harvested more spinach tonight. I am using washed out plastic containers from bird suet to put the blanched spinach in to freeze. After blanching, I was able to get 4 of those containers. I would like to buy a new food saver machine and once they are frozen, I would "shrink wrap" them for better storage. I have a total of 5 blocks now. I am glad we got them out of the garden tonight. We are getting a wild thunderstorm and have gotten almost 1 3/4 inches of rain in about an hour to an hour and a half. Great for my newly transplanted perennials!!

I never really get how to do the blanching-thing to freeze fresh veggies.... that's on my list of things to learn for sure!

Congrat's on the spinach!
