amazon has lined bags to keep out sunlight for storing onions. Do any people here use them?
Tater storage needs dark, never worried all that much about onions. They need air circulation or they will mold and rot. Paper bag and mesh bags work well.
Can these be stored hanging from a rack in a garage that is generally closed except when leaving or returning.
If you aren't concerned about all the auto emissions normally found in a garage or any fumes from any chemicals stored there. In other words, its not a good idea to store food in a garage. ;-)
They will probably last longer if kept in the house where the temperature and humidity doesn't fluctuate as much. The old fashioned way to store them was to pull them out of the ground and leave the tops attached. The tops were then braided together and the bunches hung on a nail by a doorway.
I agree, as long as it a toxic environment it would work if you keep mid 40s to mid 50s for temps. Make sure you are using hard storage onions for that. Sweet onions in general don't store as well. Wish they did. I do so love southern grown sweet onions. I don't buy imported ones.
I pull mine in the garden then let them harden off on the back porch. Braid the ends together and hang them off my pantry shelves which is dark.
