I don't have a basement and we can't put in a root cellar as we are renting. What is the best way to store a large amount of potatoes and carrots through the winter months? I don't mind freezing some carrots, but we like baked potatoes and home made baked fries and we eat A LOT of them. We have a screened in porch but I it does freeze here so I doubt that would work. We also have a garage, but they would still freeze.
