    We moved the compost bins to a new spot yesterday, a long with all that had not composted enough. I had enough of the good stuff to do two gardens. And now I have a new garden spot where the composters sat. So question is What would be the best thing to plant there?? The area is 10 ft. x 2 1/2 ft.

    Happy gardens.

    Oh wow. I want some. Potatoes would be good. As they are heavy feeders that new compost would give them lots of good nutrients.

    Delicious looking compost, you can plant just about anything there but don't let the weeds know!

    I emptied out my compost bin over the weekend. I got about 3 wheel barrows full. They went into the big planters (along with some store-bought soil) where I'll be putting in my peppers this year.
    Your stuff looks good!!

    whatever you decide to plant, it should grow....with such a great area. I would plant some raspberry bushes if I had the area, my dog Ginger used to walk out by our bushes and eat all of the raspberries:). We had to make sure we got out to pick before she did.

    Donna, if you can dedicate that area, how about asparagus? The soil is rich to start out and you wouldn't have to add much every year but a bit of compost and perhaps some composted manure. Fresh asparagus is a gift from the gods. Excess asparagus can be frozen (as if anyone ever had "excess" asparagus!).

    Asparagus yum. Not sure I can wait that long for something to grow. But I like the idea.
