If you are itching to get back in the garden, check out this article to see which crops you can start this month and get the garden started. I know winter seems so long with being unable to garden and unable to find sun ripened veggies for months. But with this very helpful list of early crops we can begin growing right now. It will mostly be greens while the cold temps are still around but fresh homegrown greens sound really good right now. When you make greens do you like to do it the way I do and make a big pot of mixed greens. They are so good mixed because you get the peppery taste of mustard and the sweeter taste of spinach and kale and you can even add you radish tops in with the mix. When the dandelions come up add some of their greens (as long as you don’t spray poisons on them).
This article from Our Stoney Acres gives a nice list of seeds to start this month for zones 3 through 7. There are quite a few seeds that can be started this month with everything from lettuces to onions and leeks. They even tell you the best time to start your tomato seeds, mmmm I can’t wait for a warm from the sun juice running down my chin fully ripe tomato.
