On PBS TV today I was amazed to see on Karen Strobeim's "Perennial
Gardener" a visit and interview with a large market vegetable grower
in the midwest who seels to farmer's markets, restaurants and through
his CSA. He was shown harvesting baby red leaf lettuce with grass hand
shears and putting the cuttings into a nicely made plastic tub with a
white plastic liner (bag) the contents of which was later dumped into
a big nylon net bag immersed in another plastic tub - for washing.
Lettuce was later put into a huge orange plastic "salad spinner" for

Anyone know where to order equipment of this sort, obviously well made
and durable for the professional market gardener.

Many thanks for any leads.
