Herbs and Vegetables
Fall is in full swing which means cooler days, falling leaves, and winter on the horizon. Now is the time to be focusing on harvesting fall herbs and vegetables. I love having fresh herbs around in the fall months because they are harvested in their prime.
Summer Herbs & Veggies
Summer veggies are here gardeners!
Don’t let the Houston heat scare you. These varieties are able to withstand our weather for a healthy fall harvest. If you missed out on adding veggies to the garden this spring, now is the time to jump on the veggie train.
Let’s run through a few of our new veggies!
- Malabar Spinach: Talk about a hefty grower! Despite having the word in its name, Malabar spinach is a leafy green and not a ‘true spinach’. This vigorous grower is perfect for those who like to add adventurous greens to their meals.
- Pumpkins: If you’re looking to grow your own pumpkins for Jack-o-lanterns this Halloween then now is the time to get you pumpkins in the ground!
- Drought Tolerant Herbs: Rosemary, oregano & lavender: the drought-tolerant trio! Water usage is crucial in the summer months so it’s important to plant water-smart.
