Hi. Here's how I do mine.
onions - in a hanging basket with large openings
garlic - in a small Mexican dish on the counter
potatoes - in a drawer/basket built in to my kitchen peninsula
lemons/limes - crisper drawer in the fridge
tomatoes - in a basket on the kitchen peninsula - tomatoes lose flavor if refrigerated (one reason why homegrown taste so much better)
bell peppers - crisper drawer in the fridge
