Has anyone done any work on a harvesting head for UTM? I’m just starting to think about it, interested in other’s thoughts.
I’m only interested in lettuce as it’s my main crop, and hard on the back.
Use an Aluminum mulch to retain water, stop weeds, and make the harvested product clean
Use a noose of thin cheese wire to loop down over a lettuce head, tighten to cut
Keep the noose spread with four or five springy arms
Collect the product in a stretchy mesh bag that fits over and contains the springy arms.
