Spinach and wolves

Help me grow great greens

I suck at gardening. Past gardening efforts have ended in disaster (bug infestations, groundhog eating everything, plants dying for no obvious reason that I can see). This year, though, I would like for it to be different. I would like to grow my own leafy greens--kale, spinach, lettuces, chard, collards, etc. I'm not so interested in other things like tomatoes and peppers. Do you have any advice for exactly what I need to do to grow great greens? [more inside]

How much spinach juice is tooo much?

Lately I have been juicing. My favorite thing to juice is spinach but recently I have been gathering that too much spinach is not a good thing. Something about goitrogens and oxalic acids. I would like to know how much is too much. Hive?

A Pound Is A Pound Is A Pound

How many pounds fresh spinach do I need to yield 1 pound cooked spinach? I can't believe how difficult this is to find: most of the Google search results are "x lbs spinach = x cups" or "how many ounces of fresh spinach in a pound" (groan). My recipe doesn't care about volume, it cares about weight!
