I live about 40 minutes from NYC in an apartment where I have a tiny front yard and a tiny back yard. I've been successful with growing herbs and flowers, but I don't have enough space to grow vegetables and fruit-- so I usually rely on going to my farmer's market and buying fruits and veggies there. Here's the problem though--- the market is about 20 minutes away and with my 4Runner it uses up a lot of gas so I can't head that way too often. But I also can't stock up on fresh fruit and veggies because after 4-5 days they go bad. Is there any trick or method to keeping things like tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, peppers, apples, oranges, and bananas from going bad so quickly?
