What to plant in January and February
This is the best time of the year for growing veggies in Florida. You can think of it as our main growing season. If you would like to start a vegetable garden. Now is a great time. The days are starting to let a little longer each day since the winter solstice and plants love the potential for more sunshine. You can plant greens and flowering crops like: Lettuces, kale, collards, swiss chard, mustard greens, arugula, broccoli, cilantro, dill, parsley, oregano, thyme, cauliflower, cabbage, snap peas, snow peas. And you can grow root crops like: carrots, beets, radishes, turnips, parsnips, rutabaga, onions.
This time of year you can start your tomato, pepper, and eggplant seedlings. Keep them in a protected area in case of a light frost. You want to get tomatoes started early, because they will not grow very long past May in the Florida heat and humidity.
