After getting my paycheck (the next to last one, my last day of work is April 29), I went by Target to pick up fruits and veggies. There were so many. I bought all my favorites- apples, carrots, asparagus, grapes, and much more. I'm pretty excited. I just hope that I can eat it all before things start to go bad. I sometimes have trouble with my fruits and veggies drying out/molding before I can get my hands on them. That is why I'm going to eat those strawberries first. Strawberries always go bad so quickly!

    Another thing that works is to mix about 2-3 tablespoons white vinegar in a bowl of water, and give the berries a good dunking. This kills off the microbes on their surface, so that they last much longer and the microbes don't start them rotting. Like with lemon juice, it doesn't change their taste, and helps keep them a week or more. Works with all berries. :) You can also freeze them on a cookie sheet, bag them, and still have them for later, if they look like they might be starting to go bad. Enjoy the fruitopia! :)

    I agree about the strawberries! What I do is the moment I get home from the store I rinse my strawberries, cut off the stems, halve them and then toss them with a tablespoon or so of lemon juice. Then I keep them in a glass not plastic dish like a pyrex and somehow all of that makes a magical combination that keeps my strawberries good for about a week longer than if I do nothing but rinse them. And the lemon juice doesn't change the flavor at all, you don't even taste it.
