Last week, I picked up my very first crop share from a local CSA along with farm-fresh eggs. What a treat! I washed my organic bounty and tucked it in the fridge with great anticipation.
I can’t believe how long freshly picked produce lasts! Prepped and stored properly in the fridge, I’m going on week 2 and NO sign of any greens getting old and moldy. Now, if I would have purchased the same thing at the grocery store, it surely wouldn’t have lasted this long. How early must our produce be picked if we can only keep it a matter of days before its useful life is over? Yuck!
So thankful to have garden fresh food that I know has no preservatives or pesticides and has optimal nutritional value. Thank you, Thorn Crest Farm.
