Gardening in West Texas-Trying Something New

Nothing seems to be getting us through Mother Nature's mood swings. We go from 90 degrees to 28 in 36 hours flat. So I have just decided maybe we need to experiment and take a new route ;0)

Planted corn seeds underneath so hay in the dirt to keep the moisture in!

My blackberry and blueberry bush have really started to take off! It is about time because I really though I would just be killing everything here in West Texas the rest of my life! But look flowers!We spent a couple hours at walmart and Lowe's this weekend and found some great plant that have survived outside in the frost and wind. Granted they have been battered and bruised but they have fresh growth and were CHEAP!I haven't given up completely though I have some fresh life that is just about ready to make a name for itself ;)
