Anyone have a good link? Particularly looking for something that has ideas for non-traditional storage ideas if you don't have a basement or root cellar available. Most of our rutabagas went bad because we didn't store them properly, and we've bought bulk onions and potatoes and some of them are going bad, too
We don't have a root cellar and our basement is a heated daylight basement and doesn't work for storage, and the garage seems to get too cold although it's insulated. I really need to figure out how to store stuff so we don't end up throwing it away!

Tribwatch.org Ignore all the doomsday crap and they've got a lot of good information. Check out Stocking Up III at your library or buy it used-lots of good info on there too. Root Cellaring is another good publication, but its out of print.

Root Cellaring by the Bubels is still available on Amazon.com...

Totally check out this book from your library. They have ideas like how to turn an out-door accessible basement window into a cool cellar, using stairs, a buried refrigerator, etc. And what temperatures certain crops tend to keep better at and so on.

I haven't been able to keep onions or potatoes either, so you're not alone in that frustration. Our entire house is too warm because we heat with 1-2 wood stoves (2 when it's a week like this and the "highs" are in the teens if that).
