EPISODE-43 MY THOUGHTS ON DIY ROOTCELLARS

Hi everyone,

Today’s episode is all about my thoughts on building a DIY rootcellars and some cheap and easy ways to do it . if you are a gardener or someone that is into preserving food this is something you probably use , and if you don’t you probably will need to sometime in the future. most homes nowadays are not built with rootcellars incorporated into them , so this project might be right for you . and to all of you with older houses that have one i am kinda envious. i recorded today’s shoe in my car at work so you night notice a difference in the audio quality but i managed to clean it up pretty well i think .
