Cistern Root Cellar

[catlist name=cistern]

Back to the Future!  Many farms have cisterns that are no longer being used.  We also have gardens, and need a place to store root crops rather than canning or freezing. Viola!  Let’s convert that cistern into a root cellar!  Genius!

Summer or winter, this root cellar stays at 50 degrees, give or take 5 degrees either way.  And it doubles as a storm shelter.  Great idea!
