Frugal root cellar

I wasn't quite sure what to title this thread. A frugal root cellar, a lazy root cellar, or I'm too cheap to hire help. Basically, I've got an old refrigerator that no longer works. If I bury it into the ground face up so that I can access the inside, would it work like a root cellar of sorts?

I've heard of folks doing that with a deep freezer, so your idea isn't too wacky. You might want to make sure that a child can't get in it though and lock themselves inside.

Very interesting! Something I have never even thought about doing. I agree with @ Almost Eden, be sure a child can't lock themselves in. Let us know how it works out if you do it.

I am pretty sure that would work. I would never have thought about it either. I don't have large appliances laying around though. I agree with the others, be careful of neighborhood kids.
