You can't freeze cabbage. The leaves are mostly water and once the fluid freezes it will burst the cells and the tissues will disintegrate as soon as it thaws. Cabbage can be stored for up to 5 months in a cold and moist environment. This means 32 to 40 degrees F, with 95 percent humidity. Place the veggies in perforated bags to promote air circulation. I think if you keep the cabbage off the floor and protected from being directly dripped on, the root cellar should work. Don't store any cabbage that are damaged or scarred as they will quickly rot and spoil others. Good luck!
