Spring at The Toy Box Suburban Farm means dividing Tarragon.
So many tarragon lovers take cuttings of mature stems. Honestly I’ve never tried that because early in February, when there isn’t much to do on a NorthWestern urban farm, dividing up a pot of Tarragon is a pleasant way to count down the days until Spring. It is a simple, no fuss way to spend a chilly day in an (almost) warm greenhouse.
The video starts with the onions getting their first hair cut… hang in there for the Tarragon.
February Garden To-Do’s
- Make a tray of “soil-blocks”
- Start blocks of broccoli, cauliflower and peas
- Plant Fava Beans
- Start a mini tray of lettuces
- Finish (or start) garden plan
In Everett, Washington we are less then 15 minutes shy of the “ten hours of daylight” time. Assuming the weather co-operates, things start growing in ten hours of daylight! Whoot!
Debs…. off to make a Leek Tart with a few of those fat leeks standing proud in the garden and the eggs the chickens are still laying (Thanks Foodie Laura).
