The real Texas Heat is here! As other gardeners around the world are going full swing, here in Texas, we are forced to take a break until late Summer/early Fall. There are a couple of crops that do well in this heat and they are okra, eggplants, Malabar spinach, sunflowers, and herbs.
May to June 2019
The garden is going strong for now until the 3 digits hot weather hits North Texas. Can’t wait for more things to bloom! Stayed tuned!
I can’t believe it is about to be Summer in one month. I have been quite busy this year with the extension of my garden to include several raised beds. This year I plan on growing more than just herbs and peppers. I am taking the plunge and growing different varieties of beans, squash, cucumbers, okra, blackberries and lefty greens such as red Malabar spinach and red-veined sorrel.
Getting my raised bed prep for the upcoming season. I had to amend the soil to add back some needed nutrients for the new crops coming in. My herbs from last year survived the Texas freeze and are going strong this Spring. If you want to grow something that is low maintenance and can withstand the Texas heat and freeze, grow herbs such as sage, thyme, rosemary, oregano, and chives.
