Book Overview

Root cellaring, as many people remember but only a few people still practice, is a way of using the earth's naturally cool, stable temperature to store perishable fruits and vegetables. Root cellaring, as Mike and Nancy Bubel explain here, is a no-cost, simple, low-technology, energy-saving way to keep the harvest fresh all year long.

In Root Cellaring, the Bubels tell how to successfully use this natural storage approach. It's the first book devoted entirely to the subject, and it covers the subject with a thoroughness that makes it the only book you'll ever need on root cellaring.

Root Cellaring will tell you:

* How to choose vegetable and fruit varieties that will store best

* Specific individual storage requirements for nearly 100 home garden crops

* How to use root cellars in the country, in the city, and in any environment

* How to build root cellars, indoors and out, big and small, plain and fancy

* Case histories -- reports on the root cellaring techniques and experiences of many households all over North America

Root cellaring need not be strictly a country concept. Though it's often thought of as an adjunct to a large garden, a root cellar can in fact considerably stretch the resources of a small garden, making it easy to grow late succession crops for storage instead of many rows for canning and freezing. Best of all, root cellars can easily fit anywhere. Not everyone can live in the country, but everyone can benefit from natural cold storage.

   Worth the money!
The book is well-organized and I recommend it to anyone. Everything I wanted to know about cold storage of produce and other foods was covered. It helped me make decisions about how to store our bounty. We managed to grow 450 pounds of winter squash, 150 pounds of potatoes and 15 pounds of garlic!

   Reasonable Primer on Cellaring
He says the book is a basic introduction to storing produce in a cellar. The book was purchased on Amazon. com, and I must have made a mistake on my part. This is a reference and it would have had more value to me if I'd been able to page back and forth, scribble things in the margins, etc. However, I did learn quite a bit about storage requirements for vegetables. At least, the book prevented me from putting in a lot of time, effort, and expense to put something together that probably wouldn't perform that well.

   Root Cellaring
We've begun our cellar, keeping the book handy, Morgenthau said. There are photos accompanying each description of the different cellars, and the guides are separated by which type of fruit or vegetable stores best suit each circumstance. money well spent.

   excellent book
I realize that cellars are not rocket science but they are science and a dying art. This book was thorough and detailed, and I recommend it to anyone. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get back to basics.

   good book
Many good ideas and if I were doing a celler for the first time I would do it. I would like to do a small version to go with our celler and other idas, Tunick said.

   Disapointed
I purchased this book in hopes it would tell me how to build a root cellar in the basement and it does, but I could get the type of plans off the internet with more detail, said Dr. Paul B. Lee, of the University of Maryland's Center for Science and Technology.

   Not what I expected, so not impressed
The book is not what I expected from Simon. The diagrams for the root cellar, which is why I bought the book, are way too technical. I need something simplistic.
