Hi Folks,

Time for my monthly planting information for the coming month.

JANUARY PLANTING:


My Personal New Year's Tradition is to Plant Potatoes!  That get's my "spring" gardening going and kind of closes out the major festivities.  So on New Year's Day I get them in, covered with mulch and give them a sprinkle of water.  I always step back and smile at the mound of leaf mulch I know hides the start of my potato patch.

SEED Selection:  Where possible choose short maturity (75 days or less) for maximum production.  Plant short rows in succession of veggies like carrots ( 2 feet at a time) to provide continuous harvest potential (can you really use 12 feet of carrots all at once?).  Also, start seeds like tomato, basil, eggplant and peppers indoors under lights or in a greenhouse to set out February 1st (with frost protection)

See the rest of this long post on my blog.

Have a Great Time in the Garden and Kitchen!
