February is the perfect time to plant seed potatoes and other cool weather vegetables.

Take a seed potato and quarter it and let it set over night so the cut ends will callus over. Plant the seed potato a quarter 3” to 4” deep and 12” to 15” apart. Space rows 2’ to 3’ apart. After the potato plant has bloomed, harvest for new potatoes. For larger size potatoes, wait until the tops have fallen over.

This is a great time to plant other cool weather vegetables either by seeds or plant starts like lettuce, spinach and cabbage. For a new garden area, try Nature’s Guide Compost, it is ready for gardens and flowerbeds.

Remember, Russell Feed stocks organic soil amendments and mulches for every type of garden.
