February Calendar

House and garden looking north

Its been a fairly mild and dry winter here so far and February has also followed this pattern. Temperatures have only rarely gone below freezing and we have only had a couple of snow flurries over night. It has also given us many bright sunny days, even warm enough to sit outside some days. Due to illness nothing much has gone on in the garden maintenance wise and its pretty much shut down until March/April. The purple sprouting broccoli that survived the early frost and snow in November are now looking good and should give us a harvest come March. I’m also hopeful of some growth spurt in the next few weeks from the savoy cabbage. Other than that its time to order seeds and particularly seed potatoes and plan whats going where this year.
