For those of you who grew root crops I might offer an alternative to digging and trying to successfully store them before winter hits with snow, frost, frozen ground. In past years I have simply covered these rows of veggies with about twelve to twenty four inches of clean wheat or rye straw………….. dango………… Winterization made easy. This amount of insulative organic material should hold the “deep freeze” at bay and allow you to harvest some of the tastiest root crops ever!!!!!!
Many folks agree that flavor is enhanced and natural sugars are brought forth as the winters chill sets in. Mother Earth will store your root crops the best ever…..
