Greensboro, NC --  You have all this fresh food and you need to store it right so it won't go bad. Food52.com has a list of advice.

IN THE FRIDGE:

Strawberries, peaches, apples.

Put dairy products and eggs in the upper to middle shelves not on the door. The temperature is most consistent in the middle.

Meat is best stored at the bottom of the fridge. That's where it's coldest and where it can't drip on other things.

Fish is high maintenance. It should be wrapped in wax paper and kept on a bed of ice for two days, maximum.

ON THE COUNTER:

Melons, citrus and bananas. 

IN THE CABINET:

Garlic and onions. They lose flavor in the fridge.

Bread, tomatoes, potatoes and winter squash.

BERRIES

The folks at Rudd's Strawberry Farm tell us you shouldn't wash your strawberries until you take them out to eat. Don't wash them all and stick them in the fridge.

CHEESE

Got a block of cheese? Take it out of the plastic. Wrap it in wax paper or parchment paper and put it in the fridge. Don't put it in a ziplock bag.

LUNCH MEAT 

Fresh sliced lunch meat should be eaten in about four days. If you want to extend that a little try re-wrapping it in foil.
