Celebrating the Humble Harvests of High Desert Homesteading

February Sowing schedule

Over the years many people have asked me for my sowing schedule– (Sue, this is for you)  I really don’t have formal one, every year is different, so many things can affect when seeds get planted: what else I have going on, phase of the moon, what shape the greenhouse is in.  If you plan to start things indoors this month, may this act as a rough guide.  I have complied a Calender from Johnny’s Seeds, some info from the North American Biodynamic Sowing and Planting Calendar, and basically my own practice.  

Below is a rough calender for February plantings.  Do reference my sources for more in depth info.  

This is my homemade greenhouse planting record.  We filled these 55 gallon metal drums with water and put them along the north wall of the greenhouse.  I spray painted them black and this one with chalk board spray paint.  Now I can record what I plant without getting my notebook covered with dirt.  Record keeping is all about making it easy in the moment, or I forget to write anything down.
