Houston does not have the temperature drops of other areas, so the vegetable garden continues.

Leaves are falling on a regular basis. Each day I sweep the patio and sidewalks. I do not mind, since this is a relaxing exercise in the cool breeze. I am taking the leaves for compost piles. I used to shred the leaves, but I create layered piles of compost under/behind bushes. What is different this year from previous years is that I am still expanding my network of garden beds. I usually spend my time working with existing beds and garden structures. I am still doing working on trellises and frames. I am still clearing out beds in preparation for the spring. However, I think that I would be planting even more if the vegetables were available.

The Garlic is Coming

Winter is a great time for garlic in Houston gardens



My daughter is connecting the idea that vegetables are plants, and my experiment from a few weeks back has proven to her that you can buy something at the grocery store to grow. One item that is doing well in my garden is the garlic. I planted the garlic heads just as they were to show her that all of them will grow shoots similar to the green onions that she knows. Being busy with work, and with uncooperative weather, has not allowed me to spend as much time in the garden as I would like, but I am glad that the plants are growing without me.

Greetings

This site came out of my desire to write about my love of gardening, but also to connect it to my knowledge derived from home inspections. That is why I tied it to the home inspection site.If you have questions, you can email them to me (frank at yourhoustonhomeinspector.com). For home inspections, call 713.781.6090.
Happy gardening, Frank
