    my favorite part:
    “Last November Wiechmann (of T.W. Food) bought 1,000 pounds of vegetables to store in the root cellar he built in the basement of his Marblehead house. In a 20-by-20-foot space, he buried celery root, beets, leeks, dried beans, shallots, and onions, covering it with another 1,000 pounds of dirt. He uses them a little at a time. In the summer he wants to pickle vegetables from the garden.

    “The old way is always the good way,” he says.”

    thanks for sharing this!
