Yellow Onions

Grower: Blue Goose Farm

Store: Store onions in a paper bag in a cool, dark place.  Do not store in refrigerator for an extended amount of time as it will soften the onions.  

 

 

 

Hydroponic Lettuce

Grower: Harmony Grove Farm

Store: Leave the heads intact and unwashed until you use them. Then, place them in the crisper drawer in your fridge with some paper towels.They’ll absorb any excess moisture, so your lettuce doesn’t spoil prematurely.  Lettuce bruises easily, so be careful not to shove other foods up against it. Using a storage container is better than a bag, which can end up squished against other items.
