          For years I've been washing off carrots/beets in my original black trug out on the lawn. most of the veggies spilled out and were still muddy. This strainer is the best. Wonderful to use. Easy to clean

            • Produce Prep

            I purchased the colander tubtrub with the 7 gal tubtrug. I am an avid gardener/canner. I have livestock so nothing goes to waste. The colander makes it possible to do a thorough cleansing of my produce at the outside kitchen. I can even use the tubtrug to water my garden with the waste water!

            Keep the dirt in the garden

            Pros

            • Durable
            • Practical

            Cons

              Best Uses

              • Keeps dirt outside
              • Rinsing produce

              I really like that the colander fits snugly in the smallest size tubtrub with a space between the tubtrub bottom and the bottom of the colander so I can rinse the dirt from the roots of produce and they are not sitting in the muddy water. I also like to rinse leafy produce outside to dislodge any earwigs or aphids before bringing them inside. The colander is quite small however, which is fine if one is harvesting just a few root vegetables or a lettuce. It would be great if Gardener's could make a colander which nested in the largest size tubtrub. These are a little expensive as others have noted, however, I imagine the company isn't producing an enormous run of them so this probably pushes up the price.

                • Washing Vegetables

                I use this w my 7 gal Tubtrug to wash the majority of dirt off before bringing vegetables in from the garden. I like tossing my lettuce or herbs into the cool water as I harvest, pull the colander and then take the still crisp produce into the kitchen to finish processing it.

                      The colander is the best thing ever for bringing in vegetables from the garden into the house - lightweight, can stay outside, and its so easy to rinse the dirt off. Such a simple idea - why did it ever take me so long to get it?

                            We are having a drought and I would rather use water as many times as possible. I used to wash the garden produce in the kitchen sink. Now I use this colander along with one of the matching buckets to wash it in the garden. Then I use the water to water the plants. Works perfectly. Very lightweight given its sturdiness
