        In our freshman nonmajors course we measure photosynthesis by timing
the rise of vacuum-infiltrated spinach leaf disks on oxygen bubbles
generated in the light.  Spinach from the supermarket works slowly, spinach
we grow in the greenhouse works much faster, but we can only grow it in the
fall because of bolting.  Does anyone know of another species that works as
well as spinach?
