January Plantings…


Jan great time to start planning what vegetable varieties , flower varieties too will be grown in the garden. In a warmer environment you can plant certain vegetables but must be ready for a frost. Indoor herbs are always great to grow in a sunny windows

Lets start our plantings form Vegetables..

1)   Tomatoes and peppers

Every curry needs Tomatoes to  get  a better taste If you add pepper to some curries it gives some more better taste and pepper gives  some heatness to body which is very essential in this season. Mostly tomatoes and peppers will take 6-8 weeks to reach transplant size so plan according to your climate zone! So Goodluck

Next comes to Some flavoured vegetable sayyy ONION:

Late January is a great time to start your onion seeds indoors if you live in a warmer gardening zone (6-10) For zones 1-5 start your onion seeds in mid-late February. Let the onions grow to 5-6 inches tall and cut tops off so they will be only 3 inches. Repeating this until they are transplanted helps strengthen the roots and health of the onions.
