- Store lettuce in a salad spinner in the fridge or with a paper towel in the bowl with it to absorb the moisture. That is the biggest reason the lettuce will go bad quickly is added moisture sitting on the leaves.
- After harvesting and curing your onions, try using old nylons or pantyhose and putting the onions in one by one with a knot in between to keep them from touching one another and then they will not go bad as fast. Also avoid storing them near potatoes as they make the potatoes spoil.
- Store potatoes with apples as the apples keep the potatoes from sprouting
- Try using the green bags for some of the other vegetables in the fridge as it helps to relieve the ethane gas emitted by the fruits and vegetables. They can even be used when freezing produce in the freezer.
