Market gardeners, take note: A remarkable harvesting tool called the Quick Cut Greens Harvester will take a huge whack out of your harvesting time. The Harvester, designed by and available from a company called Farmer’s Friend (www.FarmersFriendLLC.com) in Williamsport, Tennessee, uses a spinning, flexible brush to push greens across a cutting blade and then capture them in a large basket. Powered by a rechargeable drill, the $559 unit can cut all kinds of greens many times faster than someone cutting by hand.

You really need to see the video at https://goo.gl/w2TbjC to appreciate this new harvesting tool. Together with hoop houses, this harvester could allow every community in the country to more easily enjoy a wide selection of super-fresh, locally grown, lighter-footprint organic salad greens year-round!
