NorGard_081910.mp3109.81 MB

Guests on Northern Gardening discuss root cellars -- how they're built, what can be stored in them and more.
John Fishesr-Merritt from the Food Farm in Wrenshall and John Quist ist from the Oliver Kelly Historic Farm near Elk River talk about their root cellars. The one at the Oliver Kelly Farm is the oldest in the state, built in 1850. The Food Farm ships its carrots up to the Cook County Whole Foods Co-op in the winter.
