Making a root cellar is really easy and I would highly recommend any one that wants to be more self sufficient build one. They are great and work really well. They do not take up much space so even if you have a small garden having one is still within reach.

In addition to raw produce, root cellars are excellent locations for a number of other foodstuffs as well. Storing beverages, like wine, cider and beer, all enjoy the cool, dark environment of a root cellar.
