Baby Gabriel, Sandra, Amber, and Angie planting vegetable starts in February. Here they're planting beets. The weather we've been getting lately here on Mare Island, CA is unpredictable --sometimes it's frosty, once in a while it rains, and sometimes it's very warm. Some of our vegetables don't know what to do. Our broccoli, spinach, and lettuce are bolting, though we've had good results so far with celery and cabbage--red, green and savoy cabbage.

Vegetable starts to plant in February: leeks, onions, beets, turnips, carrots, radishes, sugar snap peas, green beans.

Pulling weeds is a chore that never ends. And if you're new to gardening, like Arthur and Bob at left, the hardest part is figuring out which are weeds and which are not. A weed is a plant growing where it is not wanted and having a harmful impact. For us, it's bermuda and crab grass.
