root vegetable storage

Love this as a way to store vegetables

You’ll need some cardboard or wooden boxes and something for insulation; newspaper, sawdust, peat moss, or sand. Place a layer of insulation on the bottom of the box and then a single layer of your root crop (carrots, potatoes, beets, etc). Make sure the roots aren’t touching the sides of the box. Cover the roots with a quarter inch of insulation, then another layer of roots, and so on until the box is filled. Make sure to leave enough room to have the top layer be a few inches of insulation. You don’t want exposed roots at the top of the box. Also, it’s best to store a single type of root in each box, instead of mixing and matching.
