Welcome February gardening! This time of the year is a pleasant time to be in your garden! It’s a great time to get planting if you have nourished your garden soil. If you haven’t, added organic matter, (compost) to your soil to encourage microbial activity and support plant life. I was at a local nursery this week and they have tomato plants. Tomatoes are either determinate or indeterminate. A determinate plant will only produce once and then it’s done. An indeterminate plant will produce continuously under the right conditions. It’s not always easy to know which plant you have purchased unless it’s tagged. Even though it is recommended to wait until mid-month to plant because of potential freeze, I say, why not be ahead of the planting season and get those tomatoes established in the garden before our summer heat returns? You might have to cover them if we get a freeze; however establishing the root system as soon as possible will likely guarantee one to two crops before the heat. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out!
