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:
Clockwise from the lower left:
- Large Leaf Basil
- Romaine Lettuce – Green Forest
- Chinese Cabbage – Optiko
- Broccoli – Imperial
- Dill – Fernleaf/Mammoth cross (behind compost basket)
- Cabbage – Ruby Perfection
- 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.
Go ahead, leave a comment. I won't bite.
