We took advantage of the rainy day by cleaning out the root cellar. Unseasonal warmth has shortened their storage life, and the sprouting onions and potatoes were consigned to compost. Though also beginning to sprout, we’ve still lots of usable garlic left.
We found one lone Ponderosa tomato left in storage, a little wrinkly but looking surprisingly viable.
Sliced open, it was still moist and juicy inside. Tastewise, it was a little green, most likely from being picked too early last fall than being in storage.
