While the temperatures were fairly mild in February, it was not very pleasant to be outside for most of the days, so we did not do a lot in the garden except for cutting foliage of grasses, pruning berry bushes and preparing the vegetable garden plots for legumes and onions.
At the end of February finally snowdrops, hellebores and crocuses started to bloom.
Fresh from the garden
After we harvested the Brussels sprouts we left the plants and now was the time to harvest the Brussels sprouts tops and use it just like any cabbage leaves.
While the first seedlings are showing up, we continued sowing lettuces, broccoli and more peppers. Then end of February it was time to start sprouting fava beans and peas, and we sowed tomato seeds of 13 different varieties, cauliflower and red cabbage.
Last year we lost many perennial plants due to the unusually strong frost in February. But February 2022 was very mild with only minor frost and no snow. Instead we had three strong winter storms in a row, a very unusual and unpleasant triple storm with strong gusts.
