Fruits and vegetables are some of the most expensive ingredients of any regular menu in your home. However, with the right resources and planning, you can take advantage of an age-old method of storage that will allow you to buy fruits and vegetables when they are least expensive or to grow your own and store them for future use. This book will walk anyone through the process of building and using a root cellar to store their fruits and vegetables for later use, through the cold winter months when even the most basic items can cost an arm and a leg. Before even starting your root cellar, you will learn the basics of choosing the right crops and planting them at the right time or buying them in advance for your root cellar. You will learn how to know which crops and which specific vegetables and fruits are good to keep and which ones should be left alone. This book will cover how and when to bring in the harvest and how to prepare for storage effectively. You will learn the basics of spoilage and what to expect from your foods, and you will discover what you should expect each winter for multiple- month storage. You will also benefit from interviews with the top experts in the field of storage and root-cellaring and farmers who have been storing vegetables for years. You will learn how to start your own underground garden and what various types of cellars exist trenches, closets, and hideaways. Discover how to start planning your root cellar, how to use your basement if you so desire, and how to start excavating and preparing an outside, isolated root cellar for the first harvest. No matter your situation or your crops, you can benefit from this book and its take on the world of root-cellaring and long-term fruit and vegetable storage.

Root Cellar Construction Handbook This book is for you if; 1. You want to preserve your home-grown fresh produce to last all year. 2. You want to sustain the security of your food in a grid-down situation. 3. You want to live off the grid and need to freshly preserve your foods. 4. You want a non-modern method of preserving foods should a natural disaster occur. Suppose you own a sizable garden or orchard or purchase additional farm fresh produce in season to consume throughout the year. In that case, you are aware of how time- and space-consuming it can be to store all those tasty vegetables and fruits. Although some foods, like broccoli and cherries, must be preserved by canning, freezing, or dehydrating, several vegetables and fruits can be preserved naturally by storing them in a cool, dark environment clear of rodents and other predators. To achieve this, the best solution is to have a root cellar considering the majority of us do not own an industrial-sized walk-in refrigerator to store things in (and don't wish to pay the electricity bill on one either). The root cellar was an essential element of the home in the era before supermarkets because it allowed the family to feed until the coming year's produce. Once again, root cellars are becoming important for the contemporary gardener and anybody striving for self-sufficiency as an energy-free, inexpensive alternative for storing produce to savor the tastes of the garden in the dead of winter and to preserve rootstock and bulbs for the next growing season. Of course, building a root cellar requires you to have sufficient knowledge on the subject to avoid making mistakes even before you begin, and that's why this book, Root Cellar Construction Handbook, was written; to serve as your compass and map to setting up a thriving root cellar. Below are some of the learning points covered in this book; 1. The pros and cons of having a root cellar. 2. The types of root cellar options available. 3. Tips for running a successful root cellar 4. Foods you can store in a root cellar, how to prepare and store them, and their storage conditions. 5. Root cellar construction requirements vis-à-vis the temperature, humidity, darkness, ventilation, size, etc. 6· Constructing an underground root cellar. 7· Constructing root cellar alternatives, e.g., sunken fridge or freezer and bucket root cellar. 8· Root cellar construction mistakes to avoid …and so much more! So, what more are you waiting for? Get a copy of this book RIGHT NOW to begin your root cellaring journey.
