DON'T FORGET TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO ENTER THE EASTER BOOK GIVEAWAY
It's April, and it's already starting to feel like summertime here in South Texas. Last month I finally got some garden bed frames made and put them in the backyard. I filled them with lots of dirt and compost and planted lots of different veggies. This morning it was so wonderful to see everything sprouting! Corn, squash, zucchini, cucumbers and watermelon all reaching up out of the ground towards the sunlight. Beautiful shades of green dazzling my eyes. Love it!
I also started some seedlings in February, and those are doing well in my garden too. Tomatoes, eggplant, green peppers and currant tomatoes are all thriving in their bed. Now I just have to wait and see what the Texas summer weather does. So far it looks like we're going to have a good amount of rain this season, but the temps are already getting to 90 degrees, so I think the hot, steamy summer may come early. Some of the heat/drought resistant varieties I plant always do well, like the tomatoes, but not everything. It's always a gamble when you plant a garden, especially down here.
