GO ME!! I was given some eco grocery bags for buying vegetables without using plastic and thought they might be useful for storing veg in then hanging them from a beam to deter rodents?
Wish I had a cellar!

We’ve been trying to avoid it wherever possible. But there are things which it does so well. If you can sterilize and reuse it, it may be worth doing, since it has extended storage life so much. Thanks for sharing!

I love the concept of a monthly root cellar report. Its an ongoing best practices evaluation of modern root cellaring. Hopefully others will also contribute an ongoing report. Will be totally neat to see what comes of it all.
