Potato cellar

Potato cellar
Just one of hundreds of potato cellars in this region of southern Oregon and northern California. The newer replacements are, of course, big metal ones as in the background here. A lot of the old wood ones are still in use, but not necessarily for storing potatoes. The lower portion of these old ones is below ground level.

Thanks, Cheryl. How are they stored there, I wonder?

How interesting..I'd never heard of them either! Ours grow year round so maybe they do not store them in bulk...I don't know.
Interesting shot, Diane

Oh, that would explain it. They are stored after fall harvest and shipped out to wholesalers and french fry makers. It's the Land o' Spuds around here. (Nothing grows in the winter except children.)
