Vegetables which i &main in good condition in the home vegetable garden after frosts begin may easily be stored safely - for winter use. Kale, Brussels sprouts, parsnips and salsify will stand'freezing, and are usually left In . the garden and harvested as needed .until just before the ground freezes deeply. If -parsnips and salsify are dug nt this stage, washed and enough for one meal packed In a paper bag, the bags can be stored outdoors in any convenient place where they will remain dry and safe from animals. They can be taken into j the kitchen and thawed out for use as needed, .Tomatoes should be harvested .fter the first hard frost. Many can be ripened if laid on a shelf in a warm basement; some prefer to hang them up. still attached to the. vine. i Sand Good For Pac*in£ 'Carrots, beets, turnips,' rutabagas, potatoes, .apples and cabbages can be stored in an nnhealed garage or shed for several weeks, until the outside temperatures have fallen to several degrees below freezing. If the carrots, beets and turnips are placed in boxes packed in soil, which is kept moist, in the protection of the garage or shed they will keep well except in extremely low temperatures. Sand is not good for ;this packing, as it docs not retain moisture well. Potatoes should not be packed in this way. Pumpkins, squash and sweet potatoes should be stored in a temperature between 55 and OS- de- gn'cs, which is often foiitid in a healed basement. The crops requiring lower temperatures may be kept in heated basements for some time flood Cm-rent River will be-discussed.
