When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider) and ten parts water. Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted you can't taste the vinegar,) and pop in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria on the surface. Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft.
Both clean, modern furnishings and rustic country décor match bulbs forced in a clear glass container partially filled with decorative rocks, polished stones or marbles. Choose large, heavy bulbs for forcing – they’ll need all of their nutrients to grow and bloom on water alone. Gather your bulbs, container and decorative stones or beads, then follow these easy steps.
