  • Curing is key to successful storage

    Potatoes, garlic and onions:  these tree vegetables are staples worldwide partly because of their versatility and partly because of their storage-ability. Late July and August is when our spring planted onions, garlic and potatoes reach maturity and are ready for harvest. If you want to harvest some new potatoes, onions or garlic before they reach maturity enjoy them at the table in short order but if you want to store them it is important to harvest them at the correct time.
