Time To Prepare The Garden For Winter

The last few nights did quite a number on the plants in the garden. It got below the freezing point. And everything, which wasn’t hardy, died. But this is a perfect opportunity to clean up the beds and plant for the Texas Winter. It’s cabbage and root vegetable season. In the greenhouse, I’ve got plenty of hay to cover up the beds, so the roots can stay nice and cozy. The next couple of days, the temperature suppose to be in the upper 60s, which is perfect weather to get the garden ready and going for the Winter Season.

Texas Winter Vegetation

We are not getting much snow in the North Texas Winters. And most of the area looks gray/beige. But it has its beauty during the colder season as well. Most of my plants are wilted and are dormant in the garden at this time of the year. In Spring, I’ll cut them back for them to grow back thicker and lusher. And some are annuals, which won’t come back. But I can use their seeds from the previous year, to grow new plants this year.
