I will plant a successful Garden

3236841475One of my New Years Resolutions, or Intentions for 2013, is to plant a successful vegetable garden that actually grows things we can eat. Since it is January and I have too much time on my hands, see blog from yesterday.

I have tried gardening in the past…

I found a site just for Florida gardens written by Bradford County and published through The University of Florida.

The article says for:

January – Plant seeds of English peas, mustard greens, turnips, carrots, and radishes.

February – Sow seeds of English peas, mustard greens, turnips, lettuces and radishes.

                    Start seeds indoors of tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and okra.

                   Start herb seeds indoors in a protected area- basil borage, chives, parsley, summer savory, and

                   thyme. Provide as much light as possible.

So, I ordered some seeds through SeedsNow.com (they have a $0.99 section) I have both heard and read that many seeds you buy through local stores like Home Depot and Lowes aren’t created to necessarily grow the vegetables…hence why in the past my garden has bloomed flowers, but never produced the fruit.

I intend to germinate the seeds indoors in my brothers room (he doesn’t know it yet, but he has a really great window that will definitely aid in the growth of the seeds).

Then, hopefully when it is time to plant them over, we will have a patio in our own place where they will grow and flourish. I will update each month as I order more seeds and prepare to have a really big, fruitful and money saving garden!

The photo was taken from Pinterest and when I followed the link I ended up on tumbler and then, I couldn’t figure out where the original came from… So, here is the Pinterest link for it. 



  1. As a new Floridian it took me a bit to get comfortable with the idea I could grow things year round! I’m not really a vegetable gardener (yet) but am certified as a Fl. Master Gardener and refer to the ufl/ifas online info all the time for tips on flower gardening. I’m sure someday I’ll branch into more tomatoes/peppers etc!
    You’ll have great success, I’m sure!
