Q: I have red and white potatoes and was wondering if I could keep them on dry straw in a basement room that does not get above 65 degrees — placing a box of straw on the cement floor? I think is the best option for coolness. I am thinking of using this same method for winter squash. Would this be a good option?

Would apples also store well this way, or are they better in the bag?
