In addition to the proper indoor or outdoor storage areas, you’ll need the following equipment to store your vegetables:
• Containers, such as wooden boxes, crates, barrels, or plastic garbage bags — cardboard
boxes are only suitable for storing vegetables that need dry conditions.
• Newspapers or other paper for wrapping vegetables.
• Packing and insulating materials, such as sand, sawdust, peat, sphagnum moss, leaves, straw, or wood shavings.
• An indoor/outdoor thermometer for monitoring temperatures in an indoor storage area.
• A humidity gauge for monitoring the humidity in an indoor storage area.
• Metal screening for use as protection against contamination by rodents in outdoor storage areas.
• Wood slats for constructing lean-to and frames.
• A shovel for digging out mound, frame, or barrel storage areas.
