Successfully growing your own vegetables is only half the story. The challenge is then to harvest and store your crop so nothing goes to waste. Haxnicks has produced a new storage sack designed to make it easy for root vegetables.
The Vegetable Sack is part of Haxnick’s Jute Naturally™ range of fully biodegradable products made from jute (also known as hessian, or burlap in the USA). The jute sack measures 70cm (2ft 3in) by 40cm (1ft 4in) and is decorated with the names of vegetables suitable for storing in this way – potatoes, carrots, parsnips, turnips, swedes, beetroot. A couple of twine ties are attached to the top of the sack, so it can be easily secured to keep your vegetables safe and sound. The woven jute allows the free passage of air, preventing condensation, so crops are kept cool and dry.
Jute Naturally™ Vegetable Sacks retail at £2.99 each and are available from all good garden centres and selected gardening mail order catalogues.
