So the question at hand is:  just how do you preserve your onions

many, many lbs of potatioes, how do YOU preserve them until next
season..? I have trouble enough keeping them in the fridge! The 
onions tend to sprout, and the spuds are inclined to get limp.  

You might want to refresh your memories of Chemistry 101's lesson plan about starch conversion. The average household refrigerator is not a good place for potatoes (or so I have always believed).
