Do you (or anyone) think I'd be wasting some money buying some of the larger plastic commercial food grade storage containers, they are tightly sealed, from the local packing houses for the purpose of storing dried beans (above ground).
I had problems in Miami from time to time with bolweevils (or something like them) that would invade my stored dried food. I had tuperware which did a decent job, until it got old and the weevils finally managed to drill a little hole thru the plastic and invaded....

In all home food production enterprises, it is prudent to expect
losses and plan accordingly.
That said, perhaps an outer impenetrable surface, say a plastic
garbage can, with inner dirt and straw surrounding the veggies. Good
