When you plan to store the crops, pick them when they are properly ripe (and contain most vitamins and minerals) and in dry weather. Store dry, pickled or boiled vegetables in a cool and dark place and in proper containers. Don’t store fruits and vegetables together, as the fruits increase ripening of vegetables.
