This summer will be my first with a real collection of jars and tins. I have a basement that is open the length of the house and a small humidifier though it also has small windows going outside. In general I can cut the humidity 25-30 percent according to the humidifier but where I live there are a couple months straight of 80-100 percent humidity upstairs and outside. We don't do AC. Just wondering if there is concern for mold or other spoilage and how intense I have to get about the cellaring? One guy I know who grows another plant and stores it puts his jars in buckets and fills them with sand. I don't want to be too anal but I also can't afford to lose any of my goods. Any folks with experience in humid areas please weigh in. Hopefully it's no big deal. Thanks!
