January Garden

Living in zone 8 allows me to start and maintain my garden during the winter since we only have less than a dozen nights that drop below 32 degrees. So this is my January garden raided bed plan.

Brussel sprouts, Lettuce, Cauliflower, Broccoli are seedlings from a local feed store. Carrots, Kale, Beets, Spinach, and Sugar Peas, I planted from seed. The Eggplant, Cabbage, and Bellpepper leftovers from last year. Hopefully, they will come back. The cute signs I purchase from Amazon*. They come unpainted.


After four days, the kale, beets, and spinach have started to sprout. I cover them on frosty nights with Valibe Plant Covers Freeze Protection*.


After one month, Spinach, Kale, Carrots, and Sugar Peas look good, but beets are not much more significant. I’m sure it is just the wrong time of year for them.

So since I’m not one to give up easily, I decided to fertilize them with an equal parts mix of Bone meal, Blood meal, and Kelp*. Check back next month for an update on my progress.
