Hurricane Harvey came through our area two weeks ago. We are very lucky that the only damage we had was to some of the plants in the garden.
The guys spent some time in the backyard this week cleaning up the garden and doing some weeding. We are waiting for the fall season now.
It’s been raining almost every day lately, and that with the heat has been great for all the tropical plants we have in the backyard.
Well, we have our tropical oasis in the backyard, but the garden has suffered for it. The temperatures have been in the mid 90s, scorching a lot of the plants in the gardens.

The Houston heat has not been good for the plants in the garden. Our tropical plants are thriving, but most of the edible plants are not.
It’s been raining sporadically for a week thanks to the tropical storm. Most of our plants are loving the break from the heat and water.
In south Texas, the weather has been heating up. Some of our plants are thriving in the heat, while others have started to bolt.
The blackberry bush was starting to get out of control, so we built a fence for it to grow on. We also have a lot of vegetables coming in.
The best part of having a backyard garden is being able to harvest our own fresh food to use in our family meals.
Over the last two weeks, we were able to harvest some of the herbs and two squashes from the garden! Everything is growing and producing.
