A root cellar is a great low-cost way to store food - not just root vegetables, but other fresh produce, too. They require little to no energy to use and very little maintenance.
You can build in a root cellar when your home is under construction, but it's also possible to add a root cellar to your basement or build one outside your home.
"Root Cellaring" shows you not only how to construct your own root cellar, but how to best use the earth's naturally cool, stable temperature as a cost-effective and eco-friendly way to store a wide variety of perishable fruits and vegetable.
You will learn:
Whether you are storing food for your homesteading family or selling to customers throughout the fall, winter, and early spring, storing vegetables in a root cellar can be a key strategy in small-scale farming.
With the methods you'll learn in this book, you will be able to stretch the resources of your garden further than you ever thought possible-without devoting hundreds of hours to canning.
