Planning ahead: If you have some experience with growing vegetables and want to help with planning what we plant and where, please send me an email as soon as possible. There are some great resources for information on Texas growing seasons including Shades of Green Nursery on Sunset and "The Texas Gardner" magazine.
The next planned work day is:
15 January - Planting day and filling the small planting beds with soil. There are many crops we can plant now for a winter and spring harvest (Lettuce, Greens, Carrots, Spinach, English peas, root crops etc.), followed by more in February. We would also like to plant some herbs. So bring some of your favorite seeds.
Fruit Trees. This also the time of year to plant fruit trees, if anyone is interested in donating a fruit tree, please let me know. Trees that do well in this area are, Figs, Persimmons, Satsuma Oranges, Meyer Lemons and Plums.
