Gardening in West Texas-Enjoying the Harvest

I'm so amazed by what Mother Nature Provides
       Wow I can't believe how long it has been since I have really made a good update on the garden. I've discovered many things so far this growing season that I didn't know before. Books lie, seeds change and your mind is the most important tool in your gardening adventure. Don't worry I haven't been out in the sun to long ;)
let me explain. Since moving to West Texas I have tried my best to do everything by the book, follow zones, planting directions and care instructions. The problem is, everything seem to be exactly what I don't need to do. "Plant in direct sun" a phase I am pretty sure should never even be mentioned when planting in West Texas lol, everything here needs some amount of shade! Especially when they are small. I have also been amazed how seeds change. This year very few of what I thought I was planting turned out to be what I planted! Yet the taste I get from every variety that comes far surpases any taste I could find in store. I have found that if I just use my brain and follow my gut I have success. It isn't the book but basic human knowledge that has gotten my garden to be the best garden I have had in 6 years. And even if my beans do not vine like they are suppose to and 2 of 13 plants know which direction is up, Mother Nature is a blessing.

I am so jealous!!! I would love to plant my own vegetables. I can remember growing up my dad did the gardening because he loved it and our first tomato was just the best! Nothing better than home grown vegetables.
