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 April...so 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.
