someone needs to educatesomeone needs to educate Ms.Newton... much of what she writes about, may look & sound good on paper/computer, but in reality, it does not work. trying to keep a root cellar at 40 degrees F or lower, in the lower 48, is next to impossible in the summer...maybe in winter, but not summer. Burying a garbage can in the soil & expecting it to be good enough to store food, is nothing short of fantasy...it does not work without outside intervention on a daily/weekly basis. I love the Old Farmer's Almanac, but articles like this one need to be removed for they are more fantasy/wishful thinking than fact.
