On this week’s episode, Travis talks all about our TubTrug harvesting containers. The TubTrugs are made to be lightweight and flexible for many different uses in the garden and around the homestead. Unlike other plastic harvesting buckets, the TubTrugs are UV resistance so they will not crack if left out in the sun and become damaged from other harsh weather conditions. These TubTrugs come in various sizes such as the Mini Shallow, Small, Small Shallow, Medium, and Large Shallow. The mini shallow has a 1.3g capacity that works best for small harvests or used on the homestead for food prep. The small TubTrug is 3.7g capacity and works great for dinner harvest or for storing and transport small garden tools to and from the garden area. While the small shallow TubTrug has a 4g capacity and works perfectly for sorting, cleaning, and processing vegetables. Next, the medium container has a 6.9g capacity that works for many different vegetables like squash, cucumbers, corn, and potatoes. Then finally the large shallow has a 9.2g capacity for sorting, cleaning, and processing larger harvestings from the garden. You can also get a variation of the sizes in our TubTrugs bundle. Also, available in a heavy-duty mesh colander design that allows for water and dirt to freely flow through it. Travis demonstrates a trick for easily washing your vegetables with the medium and colander TubTrug. Before you bring them inside to start cooking them you must first wash them off. To begin, take the medium TubTrug and fill it halfway with water. Then, place the vegetables in the TubTrug colander. The colander fits perfectly in the medium container so we take the colander and dip it the water and swish it around in the medium container. Once the vegetables are nice and clean you can simply pull the colander up from the medium container and take the colander inside. The colanders mesh design ensures that all the water will drain out properly so you don’t have to worry about it dripping throughout the house. Using this trick will provide you a quick and easy way to simply wash and clean your vegetables before bringing them inside to cook.
Other Harvesting Supplies
Along with the TubTrug containers, we also offer an Over the Shoulder Harvesting Bucket and Garden Hod. The Over the Shoulder Harvesting Bucket contains adjustable straps and padded area on the back for extra comfort. The garden hod is a multifunctional harvesting bucket that allows you to harvest vegetables and quickly rinse them off all in one container. The heavy-duty mesh wire with weather-resistant wood will last for multiple harvestings in the vegetable garden. Another handy tool to have when harvesting vegetables in the garden area is our Handy Twine Knife. The twine knife contains a blade on a ring that is supposed to be worn on your finger. It can fit either below or above the knuckle of your finger and is only sharp on the inside making it safe to use and carry. This allows you to quickly harvest trellising tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cut flowers, and other vegetables. Other harvesting supplies include a couple of knives such as the Cabbage knife, California knife, and Asparagus knife. As well as a Garden Knife Combo that contains the Cabbage and California knife and a Farmers file.
