Présentation de l'éditeur

1/10 of an acre can feed you all year!

The easiest way to grow more of your own calories is to focus on roots like potatoes and carrots. With yields of up to 200 calories per square foot, you can break your reliance on the grocery store with just a few seeds or starts and a shovel. Most root crops are easy to store through the winter and require no special harvesting or processing equipment.

So why don't we all grow roots? To keep them happy after harvest, these crops need a cool, damp storage spot like a root cellar. This book walks you through building a root cellar out of a junked fridge for $10, and also presents some slightly-higher-cost options for winter storage. Other highlights include tips for growing storage vegetables and feeding those roots to your family or your livestock.

Self-sufficiency begins with the potato!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Much more than a one-project book 30 juillet 2013
Par Heather A Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I just finished "$10 Root Cellar", and feel very satisfied with my purchase. The first part of the e-book focused on how to create a small root cellar from a dead fridge. Since I've been contemplating how to store my own root crops in my Zone 9 garden, but wincing at the cost and difficulty of building a full-scale root cellar in our hard-to-excavate clay and granite soil, I am excited to try this method. It may be a little iffy for me, since our major problem is too much warmth during the winter rather than too much cold, but I figure that for the price, it's worth a try! The detailed descriptions and the spot-on photos of the Hess's two iterations of the project leave me feeling like I have all the information I need to give it a try myself. I especially appreciate the tips on what not to do, based on their first-hand learning experiences. (Now I can make my own mistakes!)

I was very pleased to find, however, that the "dead fridge" project was far from the only topic covered by this inexpensive e-book. There were also detailed and photo-rich descriptions of other styles of DIY root cellar projects, growing and harvest tips for various types of roots, recipes (mmm, green bean and potato salad with a vinaigrette dressing... making me hungry...), and a section on feeding roots to livestock. I even gathered links to several other homesteading blogs that I am eager to check out. One addition that I'd love to see to the already highly informative charts on yield and storage requirements would be a volume measurement for each crop, for instance that 10 pounds of carrots will take up roughly X cubic inches in my dead fridge. I know, I know, what more can I ask for?

In short, I was pleasantly surprised by this content-packed little e-book, a real value at $1.99. I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised, since the other books I have purchased by this author and their homesteading blog are always fascinating, meaty, and well-researched, but how the author can afford to provide this and their other content so cheaply is beyond me. Lucky for me that they do!

The $10 Root Cellar: And Other Low-Cost Methods of Growing, Storing, and Using Root Vegetables is a well-written guide to providing food-safety for your family without spending a fortune. Anna shares with readers how to build their own $10 root cellar from a used refrigerator, and also warns about specific problems with previously failed attempts. However, this is just within the first couple of sections.

In subsequent chapters she writes about other root cellar options, from inexpensive holes in the ground and plastic tubs filled with sand, to a full-sized root cellar dug into the side of a hill, which also serves as a tornado shelter.

Other topics covered include some basic history of food storage, possible variations on the $10 root cellar design, optimal storage conditions (simplified into two different types, which I find very useful in the real world), and the nutritional values of various root crops. The last chapter even deals with using root crops to offset the grain needed to feed livestock.

If you are already storing root crops and can't get them to last into the spring, or are thinking of building some type of root cellar, this book is going to provide a lot of value to you. Even if you already have a great root cellar and have read the highly informative Putting Food By - by Janet Greene, Ruth Hertzberg and Beatrice Vaughan, this will still be a very enjoyable read because it deals with real people overcoming real challenges to store food through the winter without canning, drying or refrigerating it.

I just finished reading the $10 root cellar. It was full of ideas and great pictures. It not only has great ideas for different types of root cellars, the author includes helpful dietary information on the roots and great ways to use them. I really enjoyed the book. Five star work as always from Anna Hess!

I am so glad I downloaded this book! It is well written and has tons of great information on how to build a root cellar and grow root crops. There are plenty of pictures also, which help Me quite a bit. This is how I wish more kindles were written in a great step by step manner with plenty of instruction and pictures. I would gladly have given it 5 stars if I did not reserve five stars for just books that actually change My life with a reading. I hope the author makes many, many more great books I will surely be reading them!

The book gives you invaluable advice and easy to use directions for everyone no matter your skill level. Best part is it recycles and repurpose things that would end up in a landfill
