Our garden

The near section is a large collection of herbs, almost entirely perennials. Over to the right (the barren-looking part) is asparagus, which has passed on for the year.

 

The far section is annual vegetables, including cantaloupe, green beans, tomatoes, lettuce, and carrots.

 

Far off, in the upper left next to the kiddie pool, is our barrel composter. We put plant waste in it and spin it regularly, then dump out the plant waste and cover the garden in it in late fall and early spring.

 

PLEASE mouse over the picture for more details.

    Neat seeing your garden. I planted my carrots at the same time as my green beans. The green beans are doing well and growing like weeds, but I've yet to see so much as a sprout from the carrots. Maybe they're sleeping like your aspargus.

    What type of barrel composter is that? Link?

    I'd also like more info about the composter. I've been interested in one, but can't justify the expense.

    I am reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. In the book, Kingsolver explains that asparagus take a good three years before they are ready to be harvested. I have been peeking at your blog, and I think you might like this book as well.
