(un)Adventures in Gardening

August 7th, 2011

Well, we picked what could possibly be the worst year ever to start our vegetable garden.  You may have noticed that record levels of heat in Texas.  Combine that with a near complete lack of rain and you’ve got a bad combination for gardening.  I tried.  I really did.  Then my water bill jumped – significantly. We just haven’t had enough rain to compensate.

So I think I’m call it done for this year.  Maybe I can plant in the fall.  Maybe these constant high pressure systems will finally stop hovering directly over Texas.  I’ve even given up on my grass, which is also dying.  Our yard is a rather sad sight.  But there are things I’d rather spend money on that water to keep my grass alive.

    No kidding! Phase 3 of our landscaping redo has gone nowhere because of the heat and lack of rain. We’ll wait until it cools off a bit, maybe September or something.
