Video: How To Store Vegetables In A City Apartment
Keeping vegetables in a city apartment is not an easy task. After all, the ideal conditions for this are low humidity and a constant temperature within the range of 0 - + 4 ° С. But at home, such requirements are difficult to fulfill. And yet, many gardeners manage to bring their crops of vegetables to the city for storage. Of course, they have to come up with various tricks.
Here are some methods, verified by the experience of gardeners:
- Potatoes are best stored with beets
- Carrots are very difficult to preserve without sprouting or freezing. There are several ways to store it. You can fill three-liter jars with root crops and close the lid with the onset of frost; or store in a box, sprinkled with clean, wet river sand. The second method, of course, is very effective, but not entirely convenient in a city apartment.
- Onions can be stored in a cold corner of the room at temperatures below 18 ° C, or on the balcony, but the main thing is that the temperature is always constant.
- Late cabbage is not difficult to keep on the balcony almost until April, but in very severe frosts, you still have to bring the heads of cabbage into the room.
