Someone has cleverly divided the United States into climate/growing zones. These “hardiness” zones tell us which climates are suitable for growing which plants.
You can find out which zone you live in by entering your zip code at the National Gardening Association’s Plant Hardiness Zone Finder website.
With that bit of information, you will know which plants will grow in your area.
After a nice winter break, gardening activities pick up the pace in February. This means summer is on the way!
Depending on where you live, February is a good month to:
- plan your herb garden
- plant carrots, lettuce, or parsley in a windowsill garden
- plant garden peas and sweet peas
- pasteurize soil for seedlings
My local Extension Service’s monthly gardening calendars are very helpful. Find the one for your state [HERE].

Oh my! Haven’t we been busy around here!
It was easier than it seemed at first. We started slowly by planning only the Sunday meals plus 3 other meals based on Sunday leftovers. Then we worked our way through the remainder of the month, week by week.
I suppose we can all now jump and wiggle about while singing the Dora the Explorer song, We Did It! Because we certainly did!
