Gardening In West Texas-Thank God For The Rain!

Yep you read right we got a little bit of rain! The last 3 days have been simply beautiful here in West Texas. Lots of clouds and even a small shower. Yep for once we got a day time shower, no lightening  and winds just some nice sky water. This week we did some MASSIVE work in the garden. Most everything is planted and I couldn't be more thrilled. All that needs to be planted this coming Mother's Day weekend is some regular cucumbers, watermelons and some more beans! I have decided to read up more of survival gardening and how to maximize everything, plus I wanted to reuse some of the stuff that was headed for the trash can here. So here are some great pictures for the week with some words about each :)

The white pieces are a drawer set up!! They will be used to support my
tomatoes as they grow big and strong. While little I can cover to provide shade
from the West Texas sun!
