$10 Root Cellar on sale

$10 Root CellarIt's time to start planning your 2015 garden, and for many of us, roots will be a large part of our planting. Mark and I love to stock up on carrots for fresh eating throughout the winter months, and now that we've added goats we'll be expanding our root repertoire. But how do you store those crunchy carbohydrates?

$10 Root Cellar walks you through growing, storing, and using root vegetables for animals and humans alike. And you're in luck because the book is on sale for 99 cents today! Grab your copy while it's cheap and plan ahead for a more self-sufficient year.

(By the way, what do you think of my pretty new cover? Credit for the awesome photo goes to Stephen Ausmus at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.)

Thats a great cover! Almost makes me want to buy the book again! currently, I am using a closet space in our cellar as root cellar.Even though it is in the corner, near the walkout door, it is staying right at 39-40F, which seems pretty good. And humid enough for most things. Maybe too humid for the potatoes. Bit I have been too lazy to pack them in hay or anything.
