Zone 7b - 8a February Planting

by - February 18, 2013

Spring is on the way, and I'm seeing signs of it outside in the garden and in stores, where seed stock is in.

You can start the following indoors: kale, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, lettuce, sage, spinach, swiss chard, tomatoes, watermelon, thyme, mint, chives, oregano, artichokes, onions, celery, leeks, and peppers.
The following can be planted in the ground now: asparagus, cabbage, onion sets or plants, peas, radishes, rutabagas and turnips. 

We got snow this past weekend, but there are already some pea sprouts coming up!

  1. It amazes me that I can be 8a and you 7b and our climates are so different. I can't even plant tomatoes after spring, but I can grow a second crop in the fall. Nothing but basil and okra grow here in the summer. And maybe sweet potatoes - trying that this year (if I can ever get one to chit).
