Picking Vegetables With Ryan
Posted by F&S
We Frenchies heard that Martha needed some fresh vegetables to make her special green juice that she drinks most mornings. We're very fortunate here at the farm because there's a vegetable greenhouse for growing crops all through the cold months.
1 Here we are at the vegetable greenhouse with Ryan to pick some fresh veges for Martha's morning green juice concoction.
2 Oh, it's nice and toasty in here on such a cold winter's day.
3 Ryan, everything is growing so nicely in here. I'm sure there will be plenty to make into juice.
4 Ryan, one of the most important ingredients in Martha's green juice is spinach.
5 And I see that you have many nice rows of tender leaves, which are loaded with iron and antioxidants.
6 It's good that you use scissors to cut the spinach, instead of yanking it out of the ground. That way, the roots will send up new leaves for another crop and the cut leaves are much cleaner.
7 Ryan, here's an empty bed for planting more spinach. We want to have plenty to last all winter.
8 Oh, what beautiful baby carrots. They also make great juice and they are loaded with beta-carotene.
9 Good, you're also cutting kale, which has lots of calcium, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
10 Francesca, it's little wonder why Martha has so much energy and stamina with all of these fresh and healthy vegetables she consumes. Green juice is her vitality elixir!
