We grew sweet potatoes this year for the first time. They are about ready to come out of the ground. It was 3C (37F) overnight. How do you folks store them? Do they need to be cured first?

You can cure them to get them to be 'sweeter'. Store in a high-temp, high humidity environment for a week to get the sugars boiling in there, and you're good to go.
