Summer vegetables in Texas

This past week its been beautiful here in South Texas and everyday the temperatures reach in the high 24C, yesterday it was a little cloudy so I worked again in my back garden. I fertilized it and tilled it all under with my cultivator. I have 4 more "early" cabbage plants planted and 9 spinach plants planted right now. It's still to early and to cool to plant squash and tomatoes so I'll wait.

Thanks Penny and hope your weather gets a little warmer up where you are. I have family in "Saskatoon" and its COLD and windy over there. I can't wait to plant this Spring, we only have a short winter down here in South Texas.

I have to wait until after April 20th according to our Extension Service. I have only successfully killed tomato plants so far!

I knew about taking off the side shoots, but I've never gotten a plant to that point! I have started them inside and then taken them outside for the first time to harden off and one hour later, I have a tray of dead tomatoes! It's so sad!

Hello from South Central Texas! I been stopping by each day to read up on members but for weeks I've been busy working in my two vegetable gardens. Since the weather has warmed up I've done a lot of planting both vegetables and flowers. I planted butternut squash again, Acorn squash, Meat squash as a test that grows to 20 pounds, planted Cantaloupe this year, 13 tomato plants, sweet peas, bush beans, eggplant, & sweet corn. Just about all the seeds have come up except for the bush beans, I can't figure out why so I planted more bush bean in small cups and will transplant them after they come up. Hope everyone has a good year.

Good to have a catch up, Richard. I'll look forward to hearing how things progress over the summer.
