Gardening in January

From the Kitchen and Fruit Gardener 1847

The precise time when certain descriptions of work in the garden is to be performed as stated in the following calendar applies to the latitude of Philadelphia but by the exercise of a little judgment these hints may be made serviceable in every latitude of our widely extended country.


During this month but little may be done in the kitchen garden and we may as well pass on without further remark than that it is the season when preparation may be made for spring labour by collecting manure, preparing poles for beans, rods for peas &c &c. Those who have green houses or forcing pits will find plenty to attend to but this work does not profess to treat of such matters."
