  • dh thought he planted green beans, but it was some type of pea. The peas are dying tho! Someone said it could be b/c it's so hot out.

  • We planted tomatoes, (jalapeno, tabasco, habanero, bell, sweet banana, hot banana)Peppers, Cucumbers & Pickling pickles,Dill (for making pickles) Squash, several different types of Gourds (for hobbies & painting) Snake gourd, Nest Egg gourd, Dipper, Swan, Birdhouse etc....just for fun.
    and....Sunflowers to dry the seeds for fun.'s only June and our temps are already in the 100's and not many plants really like that very much. All the water in the world can't keep the ground temp low enough and my garden went from gorgeous to frazzled in 2 weeks. I'm just sick about it. I don't like this about south central Tx very much.

  • zucchini, tomatoes (2 types), bell peppers (red & yellow), cucumbers, okra (my favorite!), snow peas (tho they arent making anymore since it got hot), asparagus (a new one for us!), a random watermelon vine that somehow survived from last year, a potato that was growing in our compost, radishes (blah!), jalapenos, green beans, and a handful of greens (they're getting too bitter tho from the heat).

    we've also got herbs going...dill (more than we know what to do with!), basil, parsley, cilantro, & rosemary
