Even with Mother Nature not being able to decide if it’s Winter or Spring in Houston, our plants are still growing well, including the mint!
Spring can be too cool for gardening, but there are a few vegetables and herbs that do well this time of year so you can grow your own food.
The last two weeks have seen a lot more time in the yard getting the garden ready for the spring. We’ve added many new plants and mulch.
We spent a lot of time in the backyard this weekend getting everything ready for the spring. Check out the growth on some plants already!
After the freezing temperatures we’ve had this winter, it’s encouraging to see a few signs of life in some of the plants that have held on.
The harsh winter has wreaked havoc on our tropical backyard oasis. The only green to be found is the weeds of course! Is it spring yet?!
Houston has had it’s third snow this season, and this time it’s sicking around. Our tropical plants are not doing well anymore from the ice.
Houston has had a crazy winter so far, much colder than normal. With freeze warnings many nights this month, our plants are all but gone.
It’s the first day of December, and thanks to the mild weather, the plants that have survived thus far are still lush and green.
This week in our garden, we’ve cut back some of our plants, and others are growing, including a bushel of bananas!
