I run a small market garden with some CSA shares and two small markets. It is essentially a one-person operation. This season, I want to improve my efficiencies in harvesting and processing/washing my veggies. I don’t have any fancy equipment. My wash station is a tub, table and drip table. Any good sources of information (videos even) out there to check out?
That’s also mainly what I used in my similar operation. Thought at 60 shares, I was reaching the point where I had to start thinking about being more efficient. I was considering building:
- Root washer
- Bunch washer
- Automated greens “dryer” (spinner)
Washing and bagging can be so time consuming!
Yes, I find the greens, washing, spinning (hand-cranked), weighing, bagging, the most time consuming for sure. Maybe it’s time to check out the automated spinner… Have you come across any good resources for harvesting/handling various crops in the field? Thanks!
