    A root cellar doesn't have to be out of doors - one can be constructed in the corner of a basement. Sufficient moisture and ventilation are the keys

    I grew up with a root cellar in the corner of the basement in the house we lived in.

    Springtime is just around the corner and we will all be starting to think about growing and storing our vegetables so I thought it was a good time to bump this thread on root cellars. The pdf brochure is very informative http://www.uaf.edu/coop-ext/publicat.../HGA-00331.pdf

    Good stuff ;)

    BTW my Dad still calls the basement a "root cellar". It was kind of practical and typical 50 years ago.
