Unwashed veggies store the best. Occasionally carrots and beets will be washed because of weather. When it rains the garden turns into mud! The place you store your veggies should be dark and well ventilated. The place should be cool, but not go below freezing. Ideal places are root cellars, unfinished basements, and garages. Beets and carrots can be stored in the fridge or stored layered in sand in a box. Onions and potatoes can be store in a potato box or in a cardboard box with a few slits for ventilation.


Pick up starts the middle of September: Thursday and Friday 4-8 pm at the garden or Saturday 10 am -2 pm at the Steinbach Community Market. An e-mail will be sent out confirming pickup dates and times. Please note once the veggies leave the premiese sole responsibility of storing them properly is your responsibility. There are no refunds and no replacements. Veggies are carefully sorted and looked through before being sold.

  • Beets: round or cylinder
