Vegetables in February - or how to beat the supermarket blues!
Planting Vegetables in February
With so little produce on the shelves we need to think about a vegetable garden to feed our family with good fresh produce throughout the year.
The following vegetables should be planted in february:
Asparagus, Broad Beans, Dwarf Beans, Runner Beans, Beetroot, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Clery, Cress, Endive, Kale or Spinach, Leeks, Lettuce, Mustard, Onions, Parsley, Parnip, Peas, Potatoes, Radish, Salsify, Shallots, Tomatoes.
Remember if you cannot get fertiliser - use compost - we only use compost and never chemicals on our vegetables.
All you need to do is to collect all your organic waste and set aside a place in the garden to make your compost with it. Anything from grass cuttings to vegetable peel will do. in no time at all your will be producing your own compost and growing an organic garden!
Till next time.
