OK, so I have a bunch of garlic, 5 Delicata squash, and some Yukon Gold potatoes.  I have a basement.  It is finished, with 2 dehumidifiers running.  But it is arguably cooler then the ground floor.  

What do I do with these things?  Wrap?  I know the taters need to be in the dark.  But what about the squash?  And the garlic, just not touching one another?  Taters are not to be washed, I understand?

I don’t want this stuff to be all over all this season...

SR, we store the winter squash - Blue Hubbard, Delicata, Red Kuri and Butternut - in plastic milk crates so that there is air flow around them, and they keep all winter long and well into the next summer.  The Garlic we braid and hang in the kitchen as decoration, then we remove from the bottom of the braids as we need them for cooking or roasting.

OK, that helps, OG.  This is the first year I have ever grown winter squash!  I am heading to Walmart today for a container to store my canning stuff in, so will pick up a milk carton!  I already cut the tops off my garlic, will put it in the basement like last year, it stored really well, actually.  I think covering my taters with newspaper to keep it dark will do the trick!

I used a rolling metal rack for my winter squash.  I don't have a basement, so they are in my dining room; it's the room that faces north.  I will start using the blemished ones first.
