OK, now you want to take anything large, like a pepper, a whole pepper, or something pretty like that, that you want to put in your basket. This is when you're going to put it in. So, you'll just place that in there. And then we're going to take, in big bunches, our sliced vegetables. And you want to arrange them so they stand up like this, straight up and down. Put them in clusters. And you want to sort of alternate colors. So you have the green of the cucumber here. And now you want to put something, a different color. So we'll put in our carrots. And you put them in nice bunches. And they're standing pretty much straight up and down in the basket like that. Now, go around. I have the celery, which is a little bit longer. And I want to place that near my basket, the handle, the basket handle, sort of in the center. So the taller vegetables are sort of more in the center, and the shorter vegetables on the outside, like the peppers, we'll put more on the outside. So I'm putting the orange pepper here with the green celery. And then I have this orange carrot and the orange pepper: I'm going to sort of divide that up with some of this red pepper and our yellow pepper. And then I'll put another bunch of green here. I have some, a little bit more cucumber and some green pepper. So you want to have bunches of color.
