Store Produce In The Garage

If you have several heads of cabbage you can put them in a cooler. It is insulated and mice can't get in. The cabbages will keep in a cooler in a garage for several months.


Also if it hasn't frosted yet and you still have tomatoes, you can put them in boxes layering between rows with several layers of newspaper. They will ripen slowly and you can have fresh tomatoes. The box needs to be in a cool place, but not cold, like a basement. You can also use the green tomatoes for fried green tomatoes. I just flour and fry in a skillet with shortening.

On carrots, if you have room in your refrigerator crisper or an extra refrigerator, you can put them in there and they will keep quite a long time. Especially if you use them 2 - 3 times a week. You don't have to spend any time freezing or canning.

Also, apples keep for a long time in the refrigerator or put in a box putting layers of newspapers between rows. Check frequently and discard if there are any bad ones.

We have WRAPPED pears in newspapers & stuck them under the bed to ripen. Works well for us.
