It has been awhile since I updated about our garden. Some vegetables are doing great while some are suffering. Any advice, words of wisdom, help, or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. This is our first gardening experience in Dallas and only our second year of gardening all together. Our garden in St. Louis did just okay. But I have high expectations for this year. Dallas weather has proven to be a little tricky--not sure how that will affect what we have planted. I have heard that you can grow anything in Texas. We will put that to the test!
We decided to go with a variety of vegetable plant purchases this year. Some we planted from seeds, some we got from a local plant shops (Covington Nursery and Well's Brother), some from the big box stores (Lowe's and Home Depot), and some from mail order (Burpee.com).
Our peas are doing great. As the boys ate the first ones straight out of the garden...
And the pepper plants (everyting from jalepenos to bell peppers have not done well in previous years and this year they are not looking that good either. What gives? I am at a loss!
