Okay, so I've had a few requests about food storage. How do we store our bulk food items? I don't have this down to a science...so if you have any suggestions, feel free to give them.
I know certain family members are going to roll their eyes when they see I'm posting pictures of my pantry and root cellar....but if you (pretend) you really care, maybe that will shut them up. So, help me please...and tell me you are excited to see our food storage.
Anyway, on to the food storage piece.
This old door used to be a side entrance. Walk through the door, it appears it used to be a coat closet. At some point, they built this marvelous three seasoned porch and slapped some insulation behind the door. Now it's a door to no where that doesn't open. My husband mentioned something about using the space behind it for coats when we first moved in...but oh no...this wife of his had already secretly redirected the coats to another closet. You see, I was dreaming about a walk in pantry...squeeeee! Yes, our current coat closet is waaay out of the way, but I have a pantry. A walk in pantry, did I mention that?
You can see how much space there is....plenty of room for 6 quart jars deep.
And I picture in the space below the cans to be some crates of squash, pumpkins potatoes and the like with this garden I'm dreaming of planting.
Behind that insulation is a window that opens for temperature control. Only I wish there weren't pipes right there too.
