Spring Week 9

We had our first Harvest day Saturday.  The harvest baskets included rapini, mustard greens, bok choi, radishes, romaine lettuce, elegance greens lettuce and chinese cabbage. A few varieties of citrus were also included, cumquats, limes and oranges or grapefruit.  
Please be at the garden by 10 am to pick up.  As we get into the warmer weather, you will want to get your produce home and out of the heat quickly. When you get the vegetables home, you’ll want to rewash and store them.  There is a handy dandy item called a salad spinner that is HIGHLY recommended for every gardener.  Put your leafy greens in there and spin….they will stay fresher longer by having most of the moisture removed.   Salad spinners are simple devices, coming in two primary styles: Some have pumps, while others have pull-cords. Both operate manually, but owners generally find pump-driven models more user-friendly (they aren’t prone to problems such as tangled or broken cords). On the other hand, pull-cord models typically spin faster, and therefore dry greens a bit better. Salad spinners aren’t expensive, but there are a lot of them on the market. Oxo Good Grips Salad Spinner (*Est. $30) is available locally and online and received the best consumer ratings.
It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. We give Him thanks for this bountiful harvest and will be having a harvest prayer at 10am each week, please join us…
