The Fall Gardens for Texas are on their way. I am keeping my green beans and tomatoes alive. I have pruned my tomato’s back lots and as soon as it get cooler, they will start their second harvest. I have not started to fertilize yet.. I am going to wait for another week or so. Too much water will be required. BUT all of them have got some coffee.. ya. that will keep them awake.
In the next few weeks it is time to start the seeds for broccoli, cauliflower and kale. but shade and lots of water will still be required.
This fall, I will get a large strawberry bed and plant in Sept ish.
My Figs are the only fruit I have currently.
Next year my blackberry production should be excellent. So will lots of my other fruit trees. They all grew lots this year with the excellent rain we had in the spring time.
Surprisingly, my arugula has done very well all summer. It is stronger than when it is cooler, but that is ok also.
My heat tolerant tomato’s that I got seed from Texas University are doing good. My sweet potatoes and okra are also doing well. as expected.
This is also the time to prune your peach trees. BUT don’t do it too hard, or they will revolt!! If you have a question, it is easier to ask vs see the consequences, so call or email me if you are not sure.
