How should I store my potatoes and...

How should I store my potatoes and beets after I harvest them? I don’t have a root cellar.
First, make sure you brush off any soil clinging to these crops, then store them in a cool, dry place. An unheated closet might do, or put them in a cooler in your basement. Clipping the tops off the beets will keep them fresh longer. Don’t store potatoes with apples, as apples give off ethylene gas, which will spoil the potatoes.
