I cant find any mention of Okinawa Spinach on the board so thought I had better introduce it to you.
http://www.specialtyproduce.com/produce ... _13760.php
It grows gang busters in an AP system to the point of feeding the neighborhood.
I find it exceedingly hardy in AP and the dirt garden but AP produces the most and fastest growth.
Its so easy to propagate, stick a stem with two or three top leaves in a jar of water and it will strike roots in no time.
I've even had single leaves striking in the grow beds.

Heres mine, spinach, beans, sweet basil and spring onions.

The reason for all the basil is because I like to use it with the spinach.
Cut the stems of spinach, trim leaves off with scissors (easiest) leaving a couple of top leaves if you want to propagate them
Take a large saucepan with lid and place a couple of spoons of water or dashi in the bottom.
Place a thin layer of spinach leaves then some basil leaves then a sprinkle of Katsuobushi flakes.
Repeat till all the leaves are used up.
Place a lid on and steam for a few mins till soft. DO NOT OVER COOK ELSE THEY GO SLIMY LIKE OKRA.
Drain in a colander then very quickly stir fry in very hot peanut oil with some sesame oil added.
Season to choice.
I like a little instant dashi stock as a seasoning when steaming.
