Lots of crops will store well without a freezer, notably root crops. Parsnips are a good example, they can be ready by September ( though they're best after a frost) and still be ok if left in the ground until the following Spring. Beetroot, carrots and Celeriac store well in peat. Winter squash ,such as butternut, will store past Xmas. If you grow Spring and Autumn grown onions they will keep you self sufficient for at least 10 months if not more.
