Ceramic jugs in the village are not uncommon. Apparently because of the cheapness and practicability of vessels of baked clay, in which water almost months remains prohladnenskiy, and dairy products long do not spoil. They say that in bolsaescola buried in the neck in the ground and tightly sealed jars, it is preferable to preserve even home “wedding” wine. But to use them as a vegetable store…
We were surprised by such an unusual solution to a new neighbor — a native of the Krasnoyarsk territory. However, he built his own vegetable store-no jugs in Potter’s clay followed by firing, and of brick. Technology brought to a fairly simple, familiar to most of the villagers operations.
It all started with a pit. In form it is a truncated cone, leaving a smaller base (diameter: 2.8m) into the ground at 3-m depth. The diameter of the pit upstairs— 3.2 m. these dimensions freely blended vegetable store, a brick wall which is laid out in the shape of a jug with a neck-hole.
The soil at the bottom is sealed with a small roller with application of a certain amount of rubble. Added top 5-cm layer of sand, carefully leveled and compacted too. On the thus prepared base laid three layers of polyethylene film, and then erected a brick storage enclosure with reliable waterproofing.
