Last June, we moved in and I knew it was too late for a garden, so I had this area dug out, added the border, good dirt and mulch in great anticipation. I only planted the red feather grass, Autumn Sage and herbs. I'm amazed they lasted through our drought. The day we moved it was 105 degrees!
This year I experimented with seed and plants. My cucumber seeds planted very nicely!
The tomato plants are right behind them.
I planted squash from seed and plant. We'll see...they are blooming, but squash bugs are rampant in Texas!
I added these two gardens in March. I'm growing more tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, serranos and eggplant. I also put cilantro seed, basil seed, and parsley seed which are sprouting too.
The boys also have their area! See the climbing steps on the tree? The previous owners had 3 boys! This is the perfect yard for my boys too!
And if you know anything about South Texas, you know we have a lot of heat and big shady oak trees make our summers so much easier!!!
