In February, what are we supposed to do in a food garden? You can maintain and take care of the seeds you planted in January. Some gardeners and farmers around Cebu plant sitaw (longyard beans), camote (sweet potato), munggos (mung beans), rabanos (radish) and singkamas (jicama). The best way to find out what’s best for your growing site is ask experienced gardeners or seed store owners in your area. Their knowledge is priceless.
