How to store potatoes in the apartment in winter
Now is a good time to stock up on potatoes for the winter. Most owners buy root vegetables in advance so that they don't have to worry about them during the cold season. Residents of private houses store potatoes in a cellar or pantry, but you need to find a suitable place in an apartment.
OBOZ.UA has collected proven methods that will help to cope with this. First, you need to check the condition of the potatoes and get rid of rotten fruits so that all the stocks do not spoil.
Even one damaged potato can spoil the whole harvest Therefore, it is worth taking this responsibility.
Temperature also has a significant impact on fruit storage. The ideal temperature is 4 and 5 °C. Choose a dark and cool place. It can be a balcony or a refrigerator.
It's important to avoid placing potatoes near other vegetables, but this doesn't apply to beets, which will absorb excess moisture and create favorable storage conditions.
It is better to put the vegetables in wooden boxes or baskets. They can also be covered with a blanket or insulated with foam.
