Keeping vegetables fresh

I might be the last Airstreamer to learn this lesson, but I am passing it along for the next newbie.
As a full timer, I was struggling to keep vegetables fresh when on the road. I would shop at good quality markets, select the freshest zucchini, green beans, carrots, celery, mushrooms and more, seal them up in their bags, place then in the refrigerator and blah, stale and wilted after three days.

A friend turned me on to plastic bins - Tupperware-like sealed bins of various sizes. Once she gets her veggies home, they come out of the bag and into the plastic bins and in the refrigerator. So I got a few in various sizes from Walmart, and wow, what a difference. Now, my veggies go for a week or more and stay fresh. Mine have a light blue cover and a center vent, and are microwaveable. So for steamed broccoli for example, a little water, 3 minutes in the microwave and there ya go. YMMV.

Oh, this title reminded me the times when I was a doing my PhD in Canada in '87. I was living in a dormitory and we didn't have fridge back then so we were simply putting our food outside of the window. It was always cold and freezing so we never needed a fridge That's why I want so much to buy a house on the French Riviera, in a warm and sunny place, after all this RV adventure is ended for me.

We also had issues with our veggies going bad quickly in our AS fridge (we FT). My SIL gave me a set of Tupperware Fridgesmart containers and that took care of the problem. In the past, a head of kale would turn yellow in a day or two, now it'll stay fresh for over a week! Thankful to have found this option!
