Question: Storing Potatoes and Ripening Tomatoes

pinehurst | Sep 2, 2011 05:35 PM

Two, two, two questions in one!

Okay, first....any ideas on how to store potatoes without having them sprout? This is a problem for me, especially in the summer. I buy them in bulk, but never seem to use them quickly enough, and the freezer is dangerously full.

Secondly, Hurricane Irene tore up some tomato plants of mine. I'm left with about two dozen green tomatoes. I'm going to fry some, but is there a way to hasten ripening?

Many thanks.
