Storing Your Harvest: Root Vegetable Bins

Storing Your Harvest: Root Vegetable Bins

Even though my vegetable garden is just starting to sprout, I can't help but think about storing this summer's bounty in these simple wire and jute bins.

Designed for storing root vegetables, the wire cage provides air circulation while the jute liner blocks light, allowing the veggies to stay fresh and actually sweeten over the winter months. Potatoes, turnips and squash can go right in the bin, while carrots and beets should be layered with damp sand or sawdust.

Bins are available from Gardener's Supply Company for $29.95 (replacement liners are $8.95 each).
