We didn't do it last year but this year we will be setting up our roadside stand again. We got the seeds ordered today and I got to fix the garden tractors and tillers before the first of march. If I get a garden out to late the heat will kill it before it produces.

Can you shade part of the garden? Will that help the crop? I noticed that HF has shade tarps. There was a review that complained about the tarp leaking when it rained. Wrong application. Good Luck, Rick

I know some people that uses the shade tarps on the hottest part of the day but pulls them off on the coolest parts.

Shade tarps usually are made to allow rain through so they don't get pulled down by the ponding.  I have a ton of shade cloth from my dairying days that are still rolled & tied to poles around the feed alleys.  I thought about pulling the best of them down to store inside in case I ever needed them, but I'll likely never use them.

  I figured you guys down in Texas were already planting corn by now!   :smilewink:

Seeds started today. I'm thinking about letting my two sear garden tractors go since we are going to buy a bigger tractor.

A lot of types won't produce good here. What I don't like about Texas is to me the tomatoes don't taste as good as the ones I grew in Kentucky and Ohio.

First harvest out of the garden. Finger Radishes but since I have nothing else to take right now I will just freeze them to eat at home.

Spicy fresh radishes and warm buttered bread.... I can taste them now. Never tried freezing them, are they mushy when thawed?
