It actually snowed in Houston last week! While the snow was fun, it was not very kind to all of the tropical plants we have in the backyard.
It’s the first day of December, and thanks to the mild weather, the plants that have survived thus far are still lush and green.
This week in our garden, we’ve cut back some of our plants, and others are growing, including a bushel of bananas!
Mother Nature is just playing with us! She can’t make up her mind if we are done with summer or not, and the plants don’t know what to do.
The cooler Fall weather has started to roll in, and some of our tropical plants are not liking it right now while others are thriving.
It’s in between seasons right now, so we haven’t planted anything for the fall season yet, but the summer killed off most of our plants.
Today is the start of fall, do you know what that means? Nothing in south Texas. It’s still hot, and our garden is responding appropriately.
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.
