Keeping your crop fresh!

Many of you wonder how to keep those wonderful vegetables fresh.  The best thing about having your own garden is that you can pick what you need for dinner.   However, you can often keep vegetables fresh by properly cleaning them and storing them.

To store salad greens, it is recommended that you wash them thoroughly, dry them in a salad spinner, and put them in a zip lock bag.  Vegetables should stay fresh for 3-5 days.
