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.

Broccoli Microgreens

Grower: Harmony Grove Farm

Store: Keep microgreens between damp paper towels, and make sure they are cold and covered in a resealable bag or container. Wrapped this way, they’ll last in the fridge for about a week

Green Meat Radishes

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: Store potatoes in a cool, well ventilated place. Colder temperatures lower than 50 degrees, such as in the refrigerator, cause a potato’s starch to convert to sugar, resulting in a sweet taste and discoloration when cooked.

Turnips

Grower: Clarion River Organics

Store: Refrigerate the roots unwashed in a plastic bag. They should keep for anywhere from 1 week to 2 weeks in the fridge, depending on your refrigerator. To freeze, wash, peel, slice and place in pot of water that just covers them.

Baby Spinach/Red Kale

Granny Smith Apples

Grower: Dawson’s Orchards 

Store: Keep them cool. The ideal storage temperature is 30 to 35 degrees F. with 90 to 95 percent relative humidity. If you don’t have a lot of apples, the refrigerator is a good option. Place them in the crisper drawer in a plastic bag with holes in it or cover the apples with a damp paper towel.

Green Tomato Relish

Grower: Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance

Store: Store in your pantry for 2 years!
