Vegetable Storage Bins

We live in a small home, and we do not have much storage. We have a large organic garden each summer. However, we did not have somewhere to store all of our potatoes, onions, peppers, garlic and canned goods. So my wife requested I make something to store all of it.

She wanted it to have 4 different bins, with two of the bins being covered by some form of netting, or hardware cloth, and the other two bins open for jars. It was challenging to find the best “netting”, something that would give structure to hold back any shifting/falling of veggies, but that would also to allow air to freely circulate.

Not only was my wife extremely happy, but all of our family/friends loved it as well. Everyone wants one, and even I am amazed by how wonderful it looks, and how functional it is.

If I did this again, I would put slats into one of the doors, so that I could better adjust for light that would enter the potato bin. It is not a big deal for us, as this is in our basement and does not have streaming sunlight. However, if it was in a sunny spot, too much light could reach the potatoes and their shelf life would diminish.
