|Bruce from Can.
My father told me , that as a boy in the 1920's His father always put turnips, potatoes, or mangels in a "clamp" From his discription, it was a pit dug in the field near the barn, and used to store winter feed for cattle. They dug the pit by plowing with a single furrow plough,2passes over the same spot. Then diging by hand down another2-3 feet. fill the trench with the root crop, cover with straw. Then cover the straw with the dirt you had dug out of the trench, leaving a vent gap at the ridge. Dad said he hated doing this core, and when he took over the farm after the WW2 , never grew hoe crops again. So the term Clamp , is not new to me, but we putour silage in pits or bunkers. Bruce
