Growing your own Spinach or buying it?
Anyone here growing their own spinach? Or are you even buying it? They're all over the stores right now. I know that if you eat cooked spinach, even if was infected with e.coli, you'd probably be okay. But I used to LOVE fresh Spinach salad with egg pieces, onions, mushrooms, topped with WARM sweet-sour bacon dressing, including that stuff they sometimes have at Marie Callender's salad bars.
I recently ordered won ton soup in a local Chinese restaurant. And they shamelessly put baby lettuce leaf in there at the last minute. That was a week ago, and so far, so good.
My friends are growing their own Spinach. They say they'll try to do without it when they don't have anymore growing. I'm sure it'll be safe at the stores now. But if anyone grows their own, I just hope their dog or cat doesn't find their spinach bed their relief area, if you know what I mean. One theory was that wild boars infested the growers' water supply. (Or, according to some internet message boards, was it really a farm worker who couldn't wait?)
Here's hoping I didn't kill anyone's appetite for the healthiest vegetable out there.
