Hummm, I'll look that one up about the onions. I always keep my left over onion in an onion keeper in the fridge. Garlic, it's in the potato bin bottom.
I also keep the cut onions in the fridge, and will continue to do that.
Interesting. See, we always keep our garlic in the fridge. We did a side-by-side comparison with storing it in the basement pantry with the canned goods and squash and such and in the fridge. The fridge was the winner as the basement garlic dried out much more quickly. Of course, I live in arid Montana so that might make all the difference in the world. And of course, I am talking hundreds of bulbs, which might make another difference. We still need to get our garlic in the ground for next year. Soon.
Oh, yes - you have so much of it! Cold storage is probably the best for a large amount. I've never had a problem storing it in the fridge, so maybe I shouldn't change it up, but I'll just give it a whirl.
Hi, Lisa! Well, I have known that about onions (potatoes, too), but I was losing so many onions!! I tried the fridge for them, and I've not lost any! I don't know why they seemed to deteriorate so quickly.
Hi, Nellie! Well, I'm beginning to think I should just give up the idea altogether. hmm
We haven't had much luck with our onions as they always deteriorate so quickly. We thought we hadn't dried them out enough before storing them but if everyone has the same problem then I don't feel such a failure! I have never stored them in a fridge - maybe I should start! We also haven't grown garlic for years because of the same problem and because we haven't quite got the right soil/situation for garlic.
