My checklist for February may be different than many of my readers due to weather conditions but I hope you can find something of use here for your like season.
Check garlic and other overwintering alliums for growth and mulch as needed for weed control.
Take hardwood cuttings of small fruits such as: grape, kiwi, currant, and gooseberry.
Harvest scionwood of fruit trees such as apple and pear for grafting.
Divide perennials such as rhubarb, hops and horseradish, & raspberries.
Order seeds if you haven't already.
Start seeds of slow growers like celery root, and herbs.
Take a freezer/pantry inventory now that winter is waning and see if you really need so much of whatever is left. Adjust seed order and garden plan accordingly.
Inventory food preservation supplies, stock up on lids etc.
Check chick equipment and repair or replace as needed.
That is just a few things we've been working on, I've had a two year hiatus in the dairy department so I will be dusting off my milking supplies, ordering fresh minerals for my heifer, and getting prepared for the big event in May.
How does your list differ from mine? Are the differences weather or season related?
