I have said to my hubby "When we have our own place, first thing we do is get a garden going, then dig a root cellar." He agrees! The root cellar we have access to right now is dug into the ground, cemented, plastered, and has a vent to the outside. It has a dirt floor. The walls are banked up with dirt and there is a wooden roof over it. Last year we plugged in a heat lamp down there on the really cold nights. We have enjoyed fresh tasting veggies all year long and also keep our canned goods there.
