Rotting Plants in My Fridge

I keep buying organic fruits vegetables and herbs, in an effort to eat more healthy things, but I'm just letting them go to waste. Here is a sampling of what's been turned into very expensive fertilizer now:

1. Califlower
2. Red Pepper
3. Collared Greens
4. Spinach
5. Mixed salad greens
6. Ginger
7. Basil
8. Asparagus
9. Tomatoes
10. Limes
11. Kiwi
12. Potatoes
13. Onions
14. Yams
15. Peapods

I think there is some more stuff too, but some of it is no longer identifiable, and these are the ones I keep encountering when I open the bin for something to eat. There is also some broccoli in there, but it's still reasonably fresh so I'm not counting it. The sad thing is that I started with six things, and then just kept remembering more. I've got to learn to say to myself, "You need to either eat these things or quit buying them!" But the truth is I like the idea of being healthy so much more than the reality of cooking all this raw stuff. Why can't organic vegetables come diced and ready to be added to stirfry?
