These days, when you buy fruit and vegetables in a supermarket, they all seem to be scrubbed so totally clean. . .except spinach. What’s with all the dirt and rocks in spinach? What’s so different about spinach? Does it need to carry a security blanket of dirt to subsist a few days in a retail produce department? I don’t know what the Guinness record is for spinach rocks, but I got one once at Safeway that was about 1 x 1/4 x 1/4", but it’s the little stuff that sticks in there. How much can I sue them for if I don’t get all the rocks out before my teeth lose out to them? Did popeye last so long because he ate the stuff out of cans and canners somehow got all the rocks out?
