Growing fruits and vegetables for home use requires time, energy, money and a lot of emotion. Once these investments have been made and we stand proudly in our gardens surveying the bounty we are about to harvest do we sure how to store it properly until it will be consumed or processed?
This chart from UC Davis should eliminate some of the guess work.

Dan, is there a link? Even with my glasses, I can't read that! Not that I have to worry about a huge amount of veggies to store. Rolling my eyes.

I'll see if I can get the link. With my eyes I had to go to the lower right corner of my screen and increase the magnification to 150% to read the image.
