I can’t remember, but I think I’ve talked about my love of canning here before. Well, I want to do more than can. I have a lovely root cellar and I think it needs to have more in it than just jars of goodies. I’m thinking it would be good to hold baskets of apples (from our apple trees once they start producing) and root vegetables. I have plans to plant rutabagas and parsnips after we pull up the early peas so that they can winter over in the ground. I’ll store squash and some other things in the root cellar.
I just acquire a book on root cellaring and there are lots of good ideas. The book is Root Cellaring by Bubel. I’ve only skimmed so far but there is a lot more I could be doing and hopefully will be.
What I didn’t picture is that this is a root cellar underneath my stairs so the ceiling is short to begin with and then goes to non-existence. The low spots without shelving will be perfect for baskets of root veggies.
