Getting ready for fresh vegetables all winter

A couple of weeks ago I cleared my keyhole garden of the spent summer crops, topped off the bed with fresh compost and let it sit for a few days to rest and settle in. Yesterday I pulled the seedlings from the greenhouse and transplanted them in garden. Here’s a list of what we’re growing this winter:

Keyhole garden re-planted for winter of 2019/2020

Clockwise from the lower left:

  1. Large Leaf Basil
  2. Romaine Lettuce – Green Forest
  3. Chinese Cabbage – Optiko
  4. Broccoli – Imperial
  5. Dill – Fernleaf/Mammoth cross (behind compost basket)
  6. Cabbage – Ruby Perfection
  7. Cilantro – Santo

A few people have asked how well that compost basket in the center of the garden works. It works great! Here’s a quick video to show you:

As you can see, the compost is literally crawling with worms. All of them doing their part to keep my keyhole garden rich and productive all year long.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
