Review- the complete Root Cellar Book by Steve Maxwell
Just a quick disclaimer, I do not practice food storage as extreme as others. I
just like to have enough on hand to not go to the store more than every 3 weeks
or so. Yep, I am a hermit!
I recieved a copy of this book through paperbackswap.com, I have not read it
cover to cover. But just in skimming through it I have learned alot. Shows you
how to build a root Cellar & tells you how long each crop will last in a root
I am personally interested in this, with a large garden you can't eat or
preserve everything in a timely manner always. The root cellar will buy me more
time & make it more manageable. DH plans on rebuilding our well house (it is
sad looks as if the next wind might blow it away)
I am begging & pleading that he will build a root cellar type building for the
pump house. The root cellar could be a portion of the building, with corner
reserved for the well & water softner, perhaps a cinder block wall to keep them
seperate, in case moisture might be an issue. Not sure if he will buy the idea,
but it shouldn't cost a lot more & would give me room to store my canned stuff
plus some fresh produce. Maybe I could ask for a root cellar for Christmas?
Isn't that what every girl wants?
