Winterized garden box

winter garden 110104This bed has been amended with horse manure, leaves, and then topped with compost.  By February 12th this will be perfect to start planting in-and that’s about the date I begin.  The horse manure isn’t even aged-it’s about 2-3 weeks old.  I’ll remove any pieces I can identify in February and move it into the compost bin.  You can see garlic(top) and turnips(bottom) growing, along with a brussel sprout plant.   I don’t know what to do with it and will probably leave it alone to see what becomes of it.  However, that cold frame?  That’s loaded with little finger carrots that will be ready late March/early April.  And they’ll be sweet as candy.  By the way, I want to invite you over to my Facebook page.  You can find me under the same name-the wealthy earth-where I have different content than my blog.  I hope you enjoy it and can give me a “like” if you do.  Thanks to everyone…Jim
