Calling all root storage techniques!
Mark suggested I write a
short ebook summing up our refrigerator root cellar experiment, and I
thought it sounded like a fun idea. After all, our
youtube video on the
subject has had over 72,000 views, and we've learned a lot since making
it. Granted, a few commenters were less keen on the idea ("omg
thats getto i just lost IQ points"), but I don't mind being a permaculture
redneck if it helps
I'm also interested in
low-tech and/or older methods of preservation. My movie star
neighbor told me he grew up with what was called a "dairy", which was
essentially a root cellar not entirely buried in the ground, often with
a smokehouse on top. A nearby living-history museum has a
springhouse, which is like a root cellar but uses the cold running
water of a spring to keep contents cool. And I've read about
people storing apples between bales of hay in the barn, potatoes in
pits in the ground, and many other techniques to preserve the
harvest. What do people use in your neck of the woods?
Our chicken waterer has pleased thousands of chickens, ducks, pigeons, and turkeys. Won't you share clean water with your birds?
