Well here is what reminded me of the Ol' Root Cellar and of my Dad, "Mother Earth News".
Other Examples "Mini Root Cellars" are:
1) Use a larger trash Can with lid
2) Cut the top of a plastic 55 gallon drum off
3) Plastic storage containers

VEGGIES AND APPROXIMATE STORAGE TIMES:
You want to maintain temperatures at 32° to 40° F (0 to 4 C)
Brussels Sprouts.....3-5 weeks
Jerusalem Artichokes..1-2 months
Chinese Cabbage...1-2 months
Although the above storage times are approximate, check periodically for spoilage.
Well I hope you get inspired and inventive? If you have any other ideas for any type of root cellar, mini or conventional, please share with us!
