Here we have an aerial view of my fall garden.  From left to right is: cabbage, broccoli, radishes, cauliflower, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes.  For those interested in setting up your own garden, the concrete blocks are ideal, for they won't rot as do wood borders; they don't budge when you toil the soil; and you can plant marigolds in the pockets to keep away the pests.

spring garden selection - may 2017

A snapshot of my spring garden selection.  A few bags of soil to add to my existing garden beds.  Once the garden beds are established, each successive year simply requires a bag or two of garden soil in addition to my composting soil, which I spread over each garden bed.

Marigolds add some color and deter garden insects.  In this photo, I have a mixture of hot peppers; green and red bell peppers; various tomatoes; basil; and a cilantro plant.  I still plan to purchase some cucumber plants and maybe some summer squash.

tomato plants in garden #3

Here's a May 2015 photo.  My tomato crop performed adequately over the spring and summer, but I know it can be better as I learn of better ways to feed and care for the plants.  Even though tomatoes grow well in the summer, SE Texas summers can be extremely hot and brutal.  My cherry tomatoes and grape tomatoes are a little less sensitive to the hotter temps, which is great because they are so tasty in salads.

patio tomato plant

Tomato plants can easily grow in pots on a patio or deck.  This one in particular didn't produce very well.  Maybe the plant itself was subpar or the SE Texas heat hampered it because I didn't water enough.  I'm learning all the time.  One tip I recently learned was to plant the bottom stem 2 inches into the soil in order to produce a stronger root system.  (this applies to starter plants from a garden center, etc.)
