February Garden




I just wanted to give everyone an idea of what is growing in my February garden right now.  Provided below is a list of plants growing as well as some pictures (either from my garden of plants or pictures from seed companies to show what a plant will look like).  I have approximately 430 sq. ft. of growing place in a combination of raised beds, in-ground patch as well as an edible landscaping area in the front yard.  This amount of space does not include numerous pots or root pouches that will be implemented this season.  I also plan to add two more raised beds that should add about another 20 sq. ft. which will be dedicated beds.

So here goes:

Calabrese Broccoli- 24 plants

More Calabrese Broccoli, Rainbow Chard (mature plants as well as some small seedlings for a continual harvest throughout spring and summer.

I also have a variety of seeds started for spring and summer.  I have them inside under grow lights and then mature pepper plants and eggplants still producing ripe fruits in January in the hoop house (more on that to come.)
