Storage basics

Store tomatoes in a dark, cool space. Tomatoes ripen after they were picked, and can be left on the counter, in a dry spot. Do not stack them in rows and leave them so they do not touch. Put cut tomatoes in the fridge.

Store onions separately from potatoes. potatoes will sprout near by. Potatoes are good for week two

Cut the tops off the beets, as they are taking, stretching nutrients from the beet

dry fresh greens herbs on paper towels, then wrap in paper towels and in plastic wrap. Also, put in glass with water, same as flowers

About AIice

The thing is, human memory is limited. When I read, I write down things that are important for me, or might come useful later. Notes do help me remember.

AIice2 is a place for sharing what I've hoarded. Each post usually is a simple list of short notes. It also makes sense to save a reference, a source I'm quoting, so I try to keep a few. That's how my second memory works.

So, I hope, you're finding it useful, too. If you'd like to see what comes next, please subscribe for updates. Send me an email if you need to reach me today.
