Build A Root Cellar In A Corner Of Your Basement

As most of us modern homesteaders no longer have root cellars, here is a way to build a root cellar in the corner of your basement so that you can keep your harvest over the winter just like our grand parents did. Modern basements are too warm to work as a root cellar but in this article by Steve Maxwell you will learn how to wall off a corner in your basement with insulated walls and then add two vents that will act like a siphon to control the cold air in your root cellar. This is an amazing way to both over winter your garden harvest and get us back a little closer to our roots as providers of our own food. You can read all the instructions on Mother Earth News.
