Grow Your Own Food

It's spring in Houston which is quite wonderful.  Actually, we only have two seasons here:  nice and hell.  The nice months are wonderful (October to May) and summer is just something we try to survive.  After a fairly stressful winter- it was cold and the construction workers trampled everything in our entire yard- I am back in the garden.  We have started our seeds, got the beds rebuilt and turned, the compost is recomposing and we are almost ready to get our garden on!

I have been studying the gardening patterns of Houston and I am excited about my new gardening calendar from Houston Grows.

Pretty soon, we will have the following vegetables:  leeks, beets, green onions, lettuce, arugula, turnips, radishes, garlic, peppers, heirloom yellow tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli,  collard greens, carrots and more!

I'll update you with pics of my new babies and recipes!  I hope you find time and a little bit of space to start your own garden.
