When to plant what & how in Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama.
February brings North FL the 1st chance to plant a taste of summer. For SFL it's the last month to plant near most the remaining winter plants. It's been a crazy but prolific growing winter so far.. The plants that thrive on cold, my sea peas & lettuce are just now doing something to make food here. Everything else including things that have struggled the last few years like onions & garlic are thriving. Leafy greens are sweet with the few cold snaps. Coastal regions can get away with more, but over all gamble diverse, maybe shy from the stuff that can't handle the occasional near 90º day. Thinking of planting some corn to help shade the winter fare as we move toward spring.
North FL Plant cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes- beets, Broccoli*, cabbage, Carrots, cauliflower*, celery, kale*, Kohlrabi, leek, lettuce, Mustard, bunching onions, parsley, snow peas, potatoes, radish & turnips.
Central FL Get out the summer seeds!!!..Plant~ All beans, cantaloupes, corn, cucumber, eggplant, peppers, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, all squash, tomatoes, watermelon, beets*, carrots, celery*, collards, leek, mustard, parsley, snow peas, potatoes*, radish & turnips*.
