This last week I did get around to harvesting a lot of greens. It ought to last me a while. I've been eating them but still have a huge container of them in the fridge. The first set of greens were picked after the temperature had just gotten under freezing in the plastic tunnel for a couple of days.
The second group of greens were picked after two days of having 25F temps in the tunnel. I waited to pick them until we had a warm day and things thawed out a bit. They seems to be fine. I'm going to let them sit in the fridge for a week. For greens that are picked totally unfrozen this is easy for them. In fact these greens take over two weeks in the fridge just fine as long as the head hasn't been cut. But I'm not sure the frozen ones will last as long. So I just have to experiment.
This week I've been using the Fun Jen in fruity salads. I add whatever to them, but it always seems to have apples and either pineapple or mandarin oranges. The dressing is a terriyaki based one. I don't use a recipe, but just toss things together. From the garden is Fun Jen, radishes, and onions. I also made a nice stir fry out of boc choy yesterday. So the greens are slowly getting used up.
