Gardening in West Texas-Enjoying the Harvest
|I'm so amazed by what Mother Nature Provides|
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.
