My cold-storage unit to preserve my vegetables

Postby jardinier » Feb 19, 2013 2:48 pm

In 2003, I decided to build myself a cold room in the basement of the house. The goal was to store garden vegetables, and canned beverages. Of course, one of my wishes was to be able to walk in the cold to access
the shelves (walk-in).

i think its good idea to share it here with my forum friends:

How well have your root vegetables kept over this past winter?

Nicely done, I would love to do something similar, even just for store-bought onions and potatoes but certainly for our own crops too going forward. Only problem is our basement is very damp!

This looks great. I would like to know if you've had any problems with storing your onions and potatoes together. The potatoes usually make the onions rot faster. :D
