Its is harvest time with the fruit trees here in Sussex. I tried a new method of storage last year and managed to keep apples sound and fit for eating round till Easter. I just layed a layer of shredded paper in a cardboard box, put in a layer of SOUND apples, another layer of shredded paper and so on till the box was full. As you use the apples the paper goes straight onto the compost heap. I have only done it with apples but am going to see if it will work with carrots and beetroot, can't see why not. I will let you know how I get on in the spring.
