    Thanks for the lettuce tips. I can’t wait to have it growing in my garden! I love the idea of lining the produce drawer with paper towels or news paper. Clever!

    Thanks for the tips on the lettuce. I know I’m guilty of just sticking it in the fridge but I hate to waste food. I’m going to give this a try. :D

    Great tip! With our big family things don’t go bad often, but we don’t have many lettuce eaters so I will be using this one!

    This is a really good tip. Thank you for posting it. I too have suffered from the wilted lettuce experience. I had no idea it was because I left it in the original bag from the grocery store. And I would never have thought to line my produce drawer in my fridge with newspaper or paper towels. Thank you for the tip.

    My mom always did this too. I’m not sure why I forgot about doing it in my own kitchen. Thanks for the reminder.

    I need to remember this one. I don’t buy lettuce as often as I should because I’m afraid it will go bad too quickly.

    Thanx for the hints. Tired of throwing away most of the lettuce

    Thank you for the lettuce storage tip. However, i would like to say that using newspaper is not a good idea. the ink from the print will wash off the paper onto the lettuce. i think the towelling (plain white, not design or print) paper is the best idea.

    I wash it when I bring it home, use the salad spinner to spin off all the moisture and the seal it in a plastic sip bag, pressing all the air out of the bag. Works for me!

    I have a celery tip that works like a charm. When I buy new celery I wrap it in tin foil and it does not wilt. I was in hospital for a month and the celery I bought just before I went in was still perfect when i got home.
