The charts and drawings in this book save many a beginner time so that nutritious food grown in summer and fall can give security in the winter. The writing style is clear and warm as a kindly neighbor and presents even to the city dweller, a full range of understandable possibilities for storing fresh food properly and for as long as possible until it is needed.

I bought this for my husband for Christmas. It has so many different ideas for creating a Root Cellar. It even has the exact situation we have with a cellar entry way to the out side. It was exactly what he had been talking about needing to do this 'someday'.
