    Both radishes and scallions will keep. Radishes in cellophane bags
    will keep just as they are and if in a bunch, you may to trim them and
    put them in a baggie. Most likely they will be just fine as they are,
    but check on them from time to time, just in case.

    Scallions will keep for much more than a week. Just leave them alone
    and they will not deteriorate. Do not trim them or anything.

    Go, Red Sox, Go!!!!
