How Do I Freeze Greens?

I have just started a vegetarian-vegan lifestyle, which uses a variety of fresh produce. I found a wonderful sale of fresh collard greens, beets with their greens, and similar produce and bought a lot of them. I wondered if these could be frozen so that they do not spoil before I am able to consume my bounty?

Wash greens several times in clean water each time, remove any hard stems, in a large pot of boiling water blanch up to three or four batches, one batch at a time, just for a couple of min. Water must be boiling when submerging greens, you will notice they turn a very dark green. Drain well, cool and freeze in what ever you choose to use. I like baggies.
