    I get up to two weeks from the cucumbers I've been buying; I use a little more than one a week. I suppose, depending on what you were using them for, you could slice them and put them in a light...

    I can't speak for the other 5.999999 million of us but I think we are. :)

    Pumpkin seeds, in the shell. Love 'em as a snack. I'll have to ration the ones I have now; two stores were completely empty (!).

    lol. I like lacinato kale. The local food co-op billed it as "dinosaur kale" to entice the kiddoes. I tried it anyway. I like it -- milder than the usual green kale. On the other hand, the "usual"...
