The trial and tribulations of growing veggies, herbs, fruit trees and other plants in Austin, TX - Hays Co. We grow in containers and raised beds, and utilize a rain water catchment system for watering our fruits and vegetables. See how we grow our veggies for our health and for fun.
Its warm out there
Go figure. We've had a couple of cool nights, down to 33 last night, but now we are back to warm weather. Warm as in the 10 day forecast says highs in the 70's, with a possible 80 thrown in for good measure. That means the nights will be in the low 50's. Maybe rain on Christmas day, but we'll see.
Getting sorry we picked all the tomatoes. Though some of the plants I left look great. The bok choy never looked better.
Well, I'm not moving but this blog is. I've had this blog now for quite a few years. I originally made it on Blogger as a free blog. Then I moved it to one of my domains. But now I have decided that its time for this blog/website to have a true home of its own. If you want to see the new site, you will find it at www.catsgarden.us.
I have gotten most of the information from this site to the new one. For a while I will keep this site running while I make sure I have what I need on the other one.
This weather is making no sense. We had rain last week, then dry. Then this past weekend it began clouding over. Right now it is cloudy, kind of misty, but 68 with 91% humidity. At least the good thing is its nice weather for gardening. Not too cold, but not too hot either.
I went over to my neighbor last week to see her iris' in bloom. She had given me some rhizomes last fall which I attempted to plant. Attempted since the deer insisted on pulling some of them put. Well, it appears they are growing. This one is blooming in my garden. Some of the others have buds, but have not quite bloomed yet. We can hope.
The roses I had purchased online are also blooming. Here's three of them. Right now they are in pots, that's the best I can do. But they seem happy. Hopefully soon they will get a better planting.
The greenhouse has been well worth the time and trouble.
I'm not sure what kind of peppers these are. They are actually a plant I bought last year, wrong …
