      i just had a friend give me 50 lbs of potatoes. She said the best way to have them keep is put them in a cool place, wrap about 5 or 6 of them at a time in newspaper and place them in a crate. once they are all in the, cover them with cedar chips. The cedar chips will keep the pests out.

      Do you suppose cedar dust would work? Instead of chips, I mean. My husband refinished my cedar swing and I have a bucket of the leftovers.
