High up on a list of things that suck is shelling out your hard-earned money on fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs only to throw them out a week or so later

What! Fruits and vegetables don't get along! Oh, I got it! That's why we have a veggie drawer and a fruit drawer in our refrigerators. Silly me :) Thank you Cher!

I didn't know this. "Tomatoes donít need a dark place, per se, but many foodies say that refrigerating them renders them flavorless". All last years tomatoes were not as tasty for some reason, from the store or our tomatoes plants. Hope they are better this year.

A tip for celery- dont let it dry out. I put the base of mine in a jar with 1 inch of water, and put a bag over it. It will keep Great for 3 weeks or so. Trim off some of the bottom as you use up the ribs.

Thank you Cher. Now I know what I have been doing wrong.

I've found it's better to freeze any berries the same day unless you're going to eat them immediately; and to store most of your veggies in the refrigerator in good old-fashioned brown paper bags. Doing so prevents them from getting water condensation and moldy.
