Tip of the day—Give ‘em a rinse

When picking produce from the garden this season, I suggest that you pick into a mesh basket or colander—something with holes.  Before you bring the produce into the house, give them a good rinse outside.  Not only will this knock of a lot of the dirt and make it much easier for you when you start cleaning them at the kitchen sink, but you’ll also save water.  I give mine a rinse over a 5 gallon bucket and then use that to water potted plants.  Just make sure you use a rag or give them a good shake before you bring them inside, as you don’t want them to drip all over the floor. 

I can’t tell you how much time this simple step saves me when I am prepping our veggies!
