Since we have mild winters in Texas, we can pretty much grow year-round. I've begun planning and planting my fall garden. I'm probably a bit over organized (read "neurotic") about it. There's a massive spreadsheet...a map of my garden plan, coded for each variety I have (and this is only a section shown). Don't tease...I did admit to being a bit neurotic about it!
The Natural Gardener that emphasizes organic methods. The owner even has his own line of organic products "Lady Bug" brand and is a contributor for Organic Gardening magazine. A great resource to have locally since I'm still fairly new to this!
My dad plants by the Farmer's Almanac gardening calendar, and it works for him, so I follow it too. Whether or not there's anything to it or all old wive's tails...who knows. The Natural Gardener plants by the moon as well and their gardens are beautiful! I figure if the method has been in practice this long, there must be something to it! Last week was good for planting root crops, so I'm starting to get little sprouts of French Breakfast Radishes, Parmex Ball, Adelaide Baby and Nantes carrots and beets (I grow a mix of gourmet heirloom varieties - Bull's Blood, Chiogga - which are beautiful, and Golden). You can see my tiny radish and beet sprouts in the photo.
Oh, well. I still have tomorrow too!
