HOME STORAGE OF VEGETABLES AND FRUITS
Conservation of food by the home storage of vegetables and fruits is an economy
of prime importance in wartime. Such products can be stored most economically
when grown in sufficient quantities at home to supply the needs of the family.
They can also be stored to some extent by those who have to purchase them on
Attempts to store crops available in summer or early fall are not likely to be
successful, chiefly because the weather then is too warm and conditions can
riot readily be furnished that will keep the produce from spoiling. Much better
results will be obtained by waiting until late fall and using crops that mature at
When cooler weather comes, the staples that can be put away with good
assurance that they will be available, and edible, for winter use are apples,
cabbage, root crops, potatoes, onions, sweetpotatoes, pumpkins, squash, and dry
beans and peas. Apples, cabbage, root crops, and potatoes require a moderately
cool, moderately moist place such as a storage cellar or an outdoor pit or trench.
On account of their odor, tflrnips and cabbage should not be kept in a basement
storage room. Apples should be stored by themselves because of their tendency
to absorb odors from other produce and so acquire unpleasant flavors. Potatoes
should not be exposed to light. Onions should keep well in any cool, dry place
where there is no danger of freezing. Pumpkins and squash can be stored satis-

factortly in a moderately cool, fairly dry cellar or basement. Sweetpotatoe do
best in moderately dry, warm conditions such as would be obtained by placing
them near the furnace. Dry beans and peas can be kept in the attic or any
other cool, dry place. All produce intended for storage should be handled care-
fully and all injured or decaying specimens should be removed at the time of
storing. Precautions against freezing are necessary, of course, for all frulti and
vegetables stored In the fresh state.
It is not possible even in cold storage to hold peaches, tomatoes, peppers,
eggplants, and the more common types of watermelons and muskmelons in satis-
factorily edible condition for more than about a month. For some of these the
maximum storage period in a home basement or outdoor cellar would be only
a few days and for others possibly two weeks. Late in the fall, tomatoes can
be kept fairly well for a few weeks by pulling the vines and hanging them in a
dry, moderately light place. The ripe fruits can be used at once, and the mature
green ones will eventually color and become edible.
Detailed directions for handling fruits and vegetables that can be stored at
home, both on the farm and in cities and towns, are given in Farmers' Bulletin
No. 1939, "Home Storage of Vegetables and Fruits," which can be obtained by
writing the Office of Information, Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. C.
