Preparing for this week’s CSA and sales to a chef

This morning before the sun rose I picked Rainbow, Redbor, and Red Winterbor Kale, Romaine lettuce, Bellesque Endive, Escarole, Red Ace and Early Wonder Beets, and did some spot weeding and turned on the drip irrigation. I pick the leafy greens before the sun hits them so they are cool and moist from the night. After they’re weighed, they go straight into the fridge to preserve their freshness and nutritional value, and to maximize their shelf life.
