Very nice!! I too have a cold room and mine is in my cellar. Humidity hovers between 55 to 75% and the temps are 45°-55° f from winter to summer.

If we had a cellar that is where ours would be too. You have perfect humidity and temp. for spuds and carrots I would think. Did I detect some wine bottles? Do you make your own maybe?

I showed these pictures to my wife. She just gave me the look. She didn't want me to get any ideas about expanding the garden more. We do put all the veggies that we don't get eaten fresh. But not near this scale. All ours fits on a shelf 6' long. You just can't beat the homegrown taste.

Awesome stock pile,  wish we had a cold storage room like that.  Grandpa always said plan for a bad year and hope it never happens. 

 

how big is your garden. ?

Mine is only 30'x50' with a 6' x 15' squash patch on one side. I wish I had more space for corn, but I don't . maybe some day though.... I need a 24 ton excavator to move a rock pile first...

We have two gardens down here in the yard, one is 50'X200', the other is 50'X100', but part of the long one is taken up with a row of raspberries, two 4' wide rows of strawberries 50' long and a row 6'X50' of hascap and sea buckthorn bushes. Up on the hill beside the house is the potato patch, inside the hayyard that is fenced to keep the deer out of the hay. I ran 1400' of plastic hose up there to irrigate the spuds and the pumpkin patch. Then Olde Deere #2 has about a gazillion flower beds and lily patches, and we have what we call The Orchard. It has 75' of high bush cranberries, five kinds of plums, four kinds of currants, four kinds of apples, crab apples, cherries, and two pear trees. I don't know for sure how many feet of asparagus there are, at least 50, but I do know they volunteer every where and are one of our worst weeds. They say this has been the coldest winter we have had since 1937, so I'm pretty sure there'll be a lot of winter kill--- time will tell.

Me too. I would love to have a nice old school celler! My "cold room" is an interior closet on the first floor... better than nothing but stays too worm for anything besides canned goods.

I would not own a home with out a cellar!!! Especially in tornado alley!! When I was thinking of moving to Colorado , it was a mandatory condition for a home. Thankfully there were plenty to choose from, just not any decent paying jobs... So I stayed in taxachusetts.
