It looks like a good bit doesn't it but, like all greens, I am sure it will boil down to next to nothing. Since the new year has just started I have decided to weigh it like some others do just because I am wondering how much I can produce in these little raised beds so I think I will try to keep track this year. This batch was 6.2 ounces.It was kind of creepy picking the spinach only because the vultures have picked a huge pine tree behind the shed to perch in tonight so all the while I was picking there are these 30 or so vultures swooping in big circles over the house and their wings make all this noise and with so many you are afraid of ..um..what might fall on you. Anyway, nothing fell on me.

I actually had a harvest today..well..this evening after I saw the weather report anyway. Winter is finally here for a few days anyway (by Saturday we are supposed to be back up to 60's again). Tonight is supposed to drop down to 24 degrees F. and I have never had spinach growing through the winter so wasn't sure if it could live through that cold a temperature and frost so I picked it.
