Tips for Storing Greens

Turf CSA has been receiving a lot of fresh greens and csa members are practicing different ways of storing them. What works best for me is:

*Washing my greens as soon as I get home

*Loosely wrapping (slightly wet) greens with dry paper towels

*Placing wrapped greens in a zip lock freezer bag and leaving a small opening for air

*Placing zip lock bag on the bottom level of my refrigerator

When I follow these steps, I am able to keep lettuce and other greens for up to 4 days.
Above greens include kale, baby bok choi, and argula.
