I just picked about 2 bushel of apples and need some suggestions on storage. I don't have refrigerator space and my basement is not very cold. (bi-level].
Could i store them in a barrel with newspaper or straw?

Thanks,
Anita

Anita,
Apples really need a cold storage environment. Here's a site with some additional information:

Too bad you don't have a freezer, home made applesauce is the best.
