Root vegetables like beets and carrots stay fresh for up to two weeks in the fridge, while cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes will hold their freshness for one week. Artichoke, asparagus, corn and mushrooms are the feeblest veggies, lasting only two days refrigerated. Save for artichoke, lettuce, onions and radishes, vegetables freeze for at least eight months and will work well in soups and sauces when thawed. Now there's no excuse not to eat your veggies!
