Between the heat and bugs the garden is dead I harvested a few last tomatoes and started pulling up the plants. I going to start plowing later soon as it cool down some also hoping this will be my last garden in Texas. Pictures coming soon

This time of year here the heat kills out the gardens but the first September it time to plant the fall plants anyways.

In our area, there is no fall planting. Fall is our harvest season. Noel

The Internet is amazing from the standpoint of bringing us all together across a whole continent.
B Buckner is 750 miles apron south of me. Propane 1 is about 1400 miles NE of me.
The climate is vastly different.For each of us.

I sure wish I could get 2 seasons of garden.

What kind of "fall crop" do you plant? The oppressive heat and lack of rain has decimated my little garden.

Greens , squash , broccoli, cabbage and tomatoes . I won't be planting onions and garlic this year because I won't have enough time to harvest before the move

Garlic is the one crop I will plant in about a month.
They winter well and being fall planted seems to make for bigger cloves.

That's always fun, isn't it? lol. Old plastic bale twine ranks right up there too, right along with barbed wire. The worst part is, it's always my own fault.
