Gardening in West Texas-Week 3

There really isn't a whole lot to report this week. I think because of the cold night growth has been pretty limited. It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday at 6s degrees and snow will be falling with blizzard conditions today! I hope it does not kill my garlic. The seedlings are still inside so they should be fairly safe. Although it gets a bit of a chill where they are they will not hit freezing temperatures :). There is still a lot of plowing to do and that darn crab grass needs more pulling! In a couple weeks we will spread our first batch of compost. Here are a couple pictures for the week. How is the weather where you are??
Most of our flowers are getting stronger and thriving! Wish that last row would grow.

These tomatoes will get bigger places to grow this week :)

Cucumbers, lettuces, cucumbers and lots of tomatoes!

I hate the way the temperatures drop like that! Our flowers are trying to bloom and then, snow. Looks like your gardening is doing well.
The weather is si darn cold where I live that I haven't had the chance to even think of gardening!! Plus we will be moving in late I don't want to garden here to then have to move.

Good luck on your gardening and hope that last row wakes up soon!

It is doing well :) we had some droopy plants this morning but hopefully they will be ok. They are frost free at least.

It's hot here. Too hot for this time of year. I have a horrible sunburn :( I say every year I'm going to start a garden. Can't wait to see how yours comes along.

How cool! I just moved to Texas at the end of last summer and am not sure how our garden will work out this year. We are in north Texas, but I bet that it is similar to where you are at.

Love it.. love your ideas... here in Florida everything is already in full bloom and the winter crop a/k/a Citrus and Strawberries are almost over with the season.
Melanie Payne said…

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25. In fact she was not only able to get an out fit but to additional pairs of shorts! Not only was ordering fast and easy but we received our clothing in 2 days.

Butterfly Shirt $6; Matching Shorts $6;Flip Flops to go with her out fit $3.50. The excitement of picking her outfit herself Priceless. She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the

Build-A-Bear Thin Mint Bear Review and Giveaway

I've mentioned before my love of Build-a-Bear, there is nothing that brings a bigger smile to a child's face then being able to create their very own personalized furry friend. One of the great parts about Build-a-Bear is they are constantly updating the friends you can create. Right now they have a great selection on Valentines friends that you and your children can create and love. I got the chance this month to review a friend that is available just TODAY! The Girl Scouts Thin Mints Bear brings back so  many memories as of my time as a girl scout. I love that on one foot there is a Thin Mints cookie, which is my personal favorite! On the other there is the Girl Scout Trefoil, the symbol every Girl Scout knows and has pride in. My daughter is 5 years old now and I am so excited. In less then a year she will start here journey through the ranks of the Girl Scouts. My daughter simply loved this bear(as she does all her Build a Bear frien
