Excerpt from page 5
Do you want to save what could be wasted garden surpluses? Want to lower food costs and gain deep personal satisfaction?
Try storing food the natural way in storage rooms and root cellars in pits and trenches or even in the garden.
Here's a way to keep large quantities of food that is cheaper, less work, and far more energy-efficient than canning or freezing. And for many fruits and vegetables it's the best way to keep them as close as possible to their just-picked or just-dug peak of quality.
It's not difficult either if you follow a few simple rules.
One of those rules is that crops are particular about where you store them. They want just the right humidity and temperature. You probably have ideal conditions for some of them in your home right now and with little effort can provide satisfactory conditions for the others.
