    I hate to recommend a product that is plastic, but I store my lettuce in  Rubbermaid Freshworks Produce Saver, and it makes a huge difference.  I read about it in a Time magazine article about the best inventions of the year, and  I decided to try it.  It really works to keep lettuce fresher must longer.

    How easy has it been for you to plan your garden or CSA produce into your meals? Do you ever let your seasonal food go to waste?

    Lots to pea pods in my garden right now.  We eat them fresh, but I might have to freeze some.
