Today and yesterday have been particularly pleasant here on the Gulf Coast so James and I have been doing a good bit of outdoor work. Since the temps are pulling themselves out of the 20s and 30s, my thoughts naturally turned toward planting something—anything! Unfortunately, I didn’t know anything I could plant right now. We have cabbage and broccoli and collards and kale and garlic and onions growing (along with sage and oregano) but I was curious if I should be planting anything else!
Well, I pulled out my trusty Florida Home Grown book by Tom MacCubbin, to see what he had to say. Of course, he has plenty of helpful tips for us!
beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, collards, lettuce, mustards, peas, potatoes, radishes and turnips.
herbs: anise, cardamom, catnip, chives, comfrey, coriander, fennel, horehound, mint, parsley, rosemary, sage and thyme
If you have a greenhouse, you can start sowing seeds to transplant in March!
Trim and prune fruit trees. Plant fruit trees and vines.
Study your seed catalogs and make lists!!
Do be careful as we are having some cold weather and you don’t want to do a lot of work—only to have it disappear in one cold spell!
