A sampling of this year’s bounty from the garden. Too bad about the beets….. Anyway, many root vegetables make ideal crops and will overwinter. I have had much luck with carrots and certainly garlic. Beets do well in milder winter climates.
For storing root vegetables, here is some advice found on another website: “For carrots and beets, remove the tops {the green parts} because they will pull moisture from the actual carrot, making them dry and cracked. For smaller amounts, place unwashed carrots/beets in ziploc bags, seal tightly to ensure no air is coming in, and store them in the coldest part of your fridge.”
