Although February can usher in some of our coldest temperatures of the year, it’s also the beginning of the planting season for many different foods! It’s also a great time to start planning your garden for the year and ordering seeds. Our free iOS, Android, & Web app makes growing food simple and I’m going to talk about some of the things you can start planting in February in Oklahoma.
I read lots of “common beginner mistakes” blog post and articles when I started growing food, but that didn’t stop me from making them! Hopefully, this post will help you avoid the mistakes I made and avoid some of the pitfalls we encountered in our first two years.
We’re experiencing unusually cold temperatures in Oklahoma and our pipes have frozen up, leaving us without running water. We have plenty of bottled water inside for us, but her chickens are in our garage and she’s worried about making sure we have enough for them too! Mary realized she knew where she could get water from and wanted to make a video about it!
Growing your own microgreens is such a simple way to add a ton of nutrients into your diet!
Broccoli is one of our favorite plants to grow in the spring and fall. Not only are the heads delicious, but the leaves add a wonderful dimension to stir fries and provide a lot of valuable nutrients. We like to plant broccoli densely directly by seed in the spring and fall then we thin them down as they grow until only the largest is left.
Oklahoma City is in the midst of some of the coldest temperatures in recorded history, and as a result our well froze up! I woke up at 2 am with an idea for how we could fix it and got to work promptly this morning. By the evening, our water was back on again! Watch to see how we used an IBC tote and a heat lamp to thaw out our frozen well! https://youtu.be/ZQ4fKTkh7kg
