My friend Eric gave me turnips and rutabagas
periodically last winter, demonstrating the success of his method of
storing them. He has a cold room, not technically a root cellar. The
space under my screen porch is damp the way root cellars are supposed to
be, so I don't think I have to be as concerned as he is about my bins
It's been a few weeks since I put the turnips and rutabagas down there. Yesterday's (October 16) turnip had delicate filaments growing out of the root. So it thought it was still in the ground and was as fresh and crisp as could be. A turnip will totally shrivel in the fridge in a week.
Mid-December update: Everything is still alive, growing filaments and thin laves, but crunchy and fresh.
