CHECK STORED SPUDS, ONIONS & PUMP­KINS

The Napier Mail - - KEEP WARM FOR WINTER -

The old adage that one bad ap­ple spoils the lot is also true of stored veg­etable crops such as pota­toes and onions. Once rot sets in, the spores spread rapidly and can ruin ev­ery­thing you have in stor­age, es­pe­cially if the first tu­ber or bulb to dis­in­te­grate is out of sight at the bot­tom of the box. I went through my onions (pic­tured) this week and quite a few felt slightly soft, so we ate them be­fore they went to waste.
