Many vegetables will store for months, up to a year, even without a root cellar or basement, if they are properly harvested and cured beforehand.

Many homes of old used root cellars (modern homes use basements) without refrigeration to store their potatoes, apples, onions, and winter squash for the year.

Unfortunately, with the rise of refrigerators and large supermarkets giving society the ability to purchase fruits and vegetables year-round, many home gardeners lost the knowledge of curing their produce for long-term storage or thought they needed a basement or root cellar in order to be successful.

Good news is: You can use root cellar techniques to store your crops even without a garage, crawlspace, root cellar, or basement.
