Cucumber storage...
 
I don't remember who, but someone recently was complaining about her refrigerator not keeping cucumbers well. I ran across this interesting article for all you cucumber growers......

Interesting. Thanks for the link.

I was just thinking about that yesterday, wondering whether it was best to keep them in the fridge or not. Thanks for the link :smile:

Well, I just took mine out of the fridge. Guess what's for lunch today?

Thanks for the link, Kayelle.

Well, it look like I will be setting them on the counter next to my tomatoes that I set stem side down. The tomatoes last longer that way. Thanks to ATK for that tip. One of my favorite snacks is cukes and tomatoes sliced in rice vinegar and olive oil.

Thanks for the link Kayelle. :angel:

I've always kept them on the counter or in a basket.
No reason. Just what I've always done.
Now I have a reason. :lol:

I do put them in the fridge sometimes before I use them because I like them cold. :yum:

Thanks for the link Kayelle. I'm sure I'm going to spend some time there.

Well worth the read. I read the whole second page. Very interesting. I do need to stop buying potatoes in a five pound bag. I just don't eat enough of them to use them up. So I keep them in the bottom drawer of the fridge. Otherwise they sprout within two to three weeks. But I haven't seen and Maine or PEI loose potatoes in my grocery store. I don't like Russets. They are not what I grew up with and learned to love. :angel:

Thanks for the link, Kay! I'll try that with my next cucumber.

Thanks, Kayelle. I've been blaming my 'fridge for soggy cukes for ages. I'll keep them out in future.

AHH HAA, thanks for solving my mystery about who it was. :wink:
