This post is for those who think it doesn't snow in Texas. We have had five snow events this winter in North Texas. It snowed once in Houston (South Texas) that we didn't get here in North Texas.
Things change a lot in one year. Below are a few photos of my garden taken about one year apart. The first picture shows the results of global warming on my garden taken today. The second picture shows almost the same shot from the same position taken less than a month later last year.
Please note that under the snow, I have some nice lettuce, garlic, and a lot of onions doing very well. The carrots and some more lettuce should pop up next week. As you can see, I have started construction of my hoops for the floating row covers to stop the squash vine borers. I got them up yesterday and the second squash bed will be done when the snow melts.
I have also moved my tomato cages to my new bed at the back of the garden leaving the front beds for squash and onions only.
After posting the dreary winter photos I took today, I decided to add some of my fond memories of last years garden and simply hope I can do as well this year.
And to end on a high note, a few flowers from last year are in order.
