July Garden Photos: Transitioning to the Fall Garden
The nearly forty days of over 100° F (38° C) heat we’ve had this summer and the extended drought in Central Texas has taken an early toll on the vegetable garden. I’ve started the transition to a fall garden by ripping out the corn stalks, melon vines, bush beans, and many of the tomato plants.
Although it feels too hot to think about a fall garden, it’s time to plant tomato and pepper seedlings, winter squash, and corn.
