For best results, store potatoes in a cool, dark place above freezing. Heat promotes sprouting, light causes the potatoes to turn green and bitter. Store sweet potatoes above 50 degrees in an area with moderate humidity—they can keep well into next spring under the right conditions. Carrots should be stored in cold (slightly above freezing) temperatures at high humidity if possible.
Thank you, and happy October! We hope to see you soon at the farmstand, or at the markets! -Brian, Liza, and the Hutchins Farm Crew
