Erin and AG, here you go (in response to a fridge challenge):
This was June 25th. I had greens and currants from my garden in stock, but most other produce was from the grocer or farmer's market.
This is from today. I have green beans, carrots, some bitter lettuce, and beets from the garden in there. Also, some much needed donated zucchini. As you will notice I have lots of "stuff" in fridge......sauces, oils, mustards, jams, seeds, and nuts. So even when there is very little actual 'food' to eat my fridge is at least half full. And, I labeled the shelves (back in June, thus the photograph). It is actually turning out to be a good thing. It helps me clean the fridge out more often in an effort to keep things in their proper spot.
I made some oven-raosted potatoes with a mustard, lemon, and oregano coating a few nights ago, they were quite tasty:
(Keuka Gold, Red Gold, and Purple Viking)
My husband like the Keuka Gold best (as he always does, these are a Yukon Gold-like variety); I prefered the Vikings in this dish as they were rather plain tasting on their own, not as rich and buttery as the other variety so in my opinion better complimented the coating.
The full recipe can be found here. Ingredients are as follows:
- Nonstick vegetable oil spray
- 1/2 cup whole grain Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
- 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
- 3 pounds 1- to 1 1/2-inch-diameter mixed unpeeled red-skinned and white-skinned potatoes, cut into 3/4-inch-wide wedges

Edit: I should add in some of the other garden storage around here. I was amused to see Annie's Granny keeps her potatoes in the fridge. It seems as though she bucks the system and keeps her potatoes crisp and fresh. Who knew?? (AG did!)
Here is how mine are being stored so far this year, along with other alliums that are not braided and hung:
In a hall closet, with pantry items, bird, and dog food.
The potatoes are in one of the mesh drawers:
