Our friend gave me a 50lb bag of onions, and is picking up 50 or 100lbs of potatoes for me (my choice on how many). Last year, I was lazy and threw all of the potatoes in a BIG rubbermaid, and about once a month dug through and chucked anything that was starting to rot. The potatoes lasted us from October to about April or May I think. The onions last year I just kept in the sack (like a grain sack, woven "plastic" sacks, 50lbs each). I'd like to make something to help them last, both onions and potatoes, but was thinking I'd see what other folks have. Our basement is out, it's very hot from the furnace (tiny basement), and damp from being a Michigan basement (unsealed walls, uneven concrete floor, flooding fun, sump pump.) Figured I'd see what other folks do For the price - $5 for 50lb onions, $10 for 100lbs potatoes.
