Instructions for the Wirework Storage Baskets

The Wirework Storage Baskets come in a set of three that can be nested for storage. Each basket holds up to 10 pounds.

The baskets can be used with Optional Jute Liners.

Storing Root Vegetables in the Baskets with Optional Jute Liners

Line each basket with a jute liner.

Fill each basket with the vegetables you want to store. Potatoes, turnips,onions and squash will keep well when placed inside the liner.

For best results, the Wire Bins should be stored in a cool, dark cellar or outbuilding.
