Root Crop Storage Bin- root veggies like carrots and beets will stay fresh all winter and even grow sweeter in this storage bin. Just fill with layers of damp sand or sawdust, alternating with layers of carrots or beets, and put in a cool, dark place. Potatoes, turnips and squash can go right in the bin without sand.


Always have perennial vegetables Asparagus:let them go to fern over winter, cut all the way back early spring Garlic-onion: Leave a few behind each year they will go to seed Sunchoke: Leave a few in ground for next year Artichoke: Each year a few buds will be on each plant. Plant in a moist well-composted area. Radiccio: Cut back to ground and cover, new leaves will come again and again.

Parisian Carrots (55 days)...A great little round carrot that is a nineteenth-century French heirloom. It "excels in clay or rocky soil where other carrots have problems developing properly". They say it works great for containers.
