Infographic Tells You What to Look For When Buying Vegetables
If you are unable to tell which tomatoes are ripe or if that lettuce is fresh, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has a helpful guide on how to select vegetables at the supermarket.
We’ve talked about some of this before, but we figured it would be perfect to put it in an easy-to-scan, printable infographic format. Save it on your phone or print it out and take it to the store, and you’ll always have the freshest veggies. Check it out below.
Other important advice while buying produce:
- Handle produce carefully. Someone must pay for vegetables ruined by rough handling. In the long run, it will probably be you.
- It’s a good idea to cook your vegetables as soon as you’re home, so as to make them last longer.
- Don’t buy because of low price alone. It doesn’t pay to buy more vegetables than you can properly store in your refrigerator or use without waste. Most fresh vegetables can be stored for 2 to 5 days, except for root vegetables, which can be stored from 1 to several weeks.
- Don’t shy away from irregular or misshapen vegetables, says WonderHowTo. They often have the best taste, according to Brian Everett of Jacob Farms/Del Cabo Organics.
- If your tomatoes need further ripening, keep them in a warm place but not in direct sunlight. Unless they are fully ripened, do not store tomatoes in a refrigerator—the cold temperatures might keep them from ripening later on and ruin the flavor.
- Is that corn or pumpkin ripe to eat? Here’s how to tell.
- This infographic only covers vegetables, but we also have some advice on picking fresh, ripe fruit.

Looking to beef up my Los Angeles timelapses, I rented a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II Lens from BorrowLenses.comand spent September 4th-11th shooting in a series of epic vantage points with two Canon 6Ds. The light of the latest “Supermoon” provided incredible extra definition in the darks of the city panoramas, while also giving some great separation to the skyscrapers.
Since we’re only 452 days away from the 20th anniversary of one my favorite movies HEAT, I set it to one of the soundtrack songs, an incredible piece of music by Elliot Goldenthal. The cityscapes of HEAT inspired me to make movies long ago, so it was a special treat looking down on LA from some similar angles to the classic Michael Mann film. I finished the edit with a few city captures from previous shoots and here’s the result! Motion control shots DynamicPerception.com Stage Zero and others using 5K QT Panning.
