Extension: Handling your harvest

It is the time of year where the fruits of our labor are finally paying off. Berries, squash, zucchini, and beans are ripe for the picking, but sometimes after your produce and putting it on the counter for later use, it begins to soften before you ever get the chance to use it. I like to think that home harvesting was the original source of the phrase “use it or lose it”.
