Compost for Next Year’s Garden

Things are starting to wind down for the year in the garden. I’m still harvesting quite a bit of the same stuff (tomatoes, peppers, hot peppers, cucumbers, green beans, eggplant), and will be until we get a hard frost (our average first hard frost is mid-October), but my attention is starting to shift to next year. So, witness the giant pile of compost below! This is the beginning of my asparagus bed for next year.

  1. Hello! That looks like a good compost pile…Reminds me I have to actually use mine, now it is nicely rotten down – and not just collect the stuff to make ever-bigger heaps! I garden organically (ish) in the UK, I’m also learning more about permaculture and growing in polycultures at the moment – there’s always something new, isn;t there? Happy growing!

  2. Actually, I need to dig out some of my compost and use it too. The compost in this pile was all free city compost, and I got that pretty well spread out over my garden, but I need to use some of my own backyard heap. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!
