    No experiance with yams but potatoes store well in a cool, Dry, dark place. Root cellars and the right basements can work well.

    Root cellar ~35 oF. If they sprout they are still edible, or plant them in spring.

    My mom suggested I store mine under the house in boxes. I'll probably try that this year. You can also precook them halfway through and freeze them depending on what you want them for.

    I've always wondered? Unless water table prevents it, why don't many southern homes have cellars?

    Seems like an ideal place to hide from the heat and you won't need AC. Will need a dehumidifier. I set up a cot here in the basement for the days we get hot/humid in summer, it stays ~65-70 oF when in the 90s upstairs.

    In winters it seldom gets below freezing.

    If you do pack them in boxes...…..try to space them apart and layer with straw all around......that way if one goes bad, it won't take the others with it.

    Yes, that's a good question. I can only say that in New Orleans they're below sea level and they don't even bury their dead but place the coffins (?) Mausoleums above ground. But as for the rest, maybe someone can answer.
    St. Michael the Archangel,
    defend us in battle.
    Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
    and do thou,
    O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan,
    and all the evil spirits,
    who prowl about the world
    seeking the ruin of souls.

    Amen
