With a cool front making its way through Houston, it was time to start preparing the garden for the cooler temperatures and winter months.
With the summer winding down (even though the temps aren’t coming down yet), the plants are starting to show their fall colors.
Rainy season is in full-force (and there’s a potential tropical system) meaning our plants have been well-watered and happy lately.
The start of the rainy season in SE Texas has started this month. It makes back-to-school difficult, but our plants love the extra water!
The middle of summer is not the best time for harvesting, but we have been able to get one green onion and grow some of our favorite herbs.
Texas heat is brutal, but some of the plants are still growing despite very little rain or reprieve. The herb garden was restarted inside.
Summer in SE Texas is brutal! The temperatures are in the upper 90s and we don’t want to go outside, so the garden is suffering, too.
It’s never fun to cut back plants, but sometimes a bit of pruning is just what they need to grow healthier and produce a better harvest.
With a tropical low sitting off the coast of Texas, we’ve had rain for almost a week straight and the plants are thriving even without sun.
After being away for two weeks, I was pleasantly surprised at how well our garden held up even with sprinkler malfunction and 90F weather!
