Gardening in West Texas 2013-It Starts!

I can't believe it is already time once again to get my garden going! I am still learning every day about how I can make a successful garden here in the heat. We have begun starting our seeds inside :) and I am super excited to say that we have some sprouting!
Tomato plants that I grew from seeds I harvested myself!
I can't wait to see if they produce :)


Flower seeds planted but no growth yet :) We finally are getting BEES!
For those who don't know West Texas has a large bee shortage
due to all the crop spraying. This ironically lowers the crop production
which then requires more chemicals :(

Cucumbers and Tomatoes Started and growing good.
Now I also have a large patch of Garlic. We planted the bulbs a while back in the depths of winter. Just last weekend they started coming up green and happy! I am so excited to see what this year is going to bring and I hope you will join us in our adventures.

I have always wanted to try a garden except I am really bad at it lol. I would love to grow my own tomatoes someday. I think I will just buy an orange tree and grow those. haha

I am sooooo jealous that you get to "start" working on your garden this early, we have to wait till end of May normally which leaves very little grow time, if my tomato plants are not already 8" tall when put in ground forget getting good fruit! Your seedlings look excellent, good luck :)
