Spring in January

I like living this far south. I will put up with 99 degree weather and 95% humidity even though it's not raining. I get to garden year round. Even though it's freezing on the mainland tonight, it's 10 degrees warmer here on the island. My broccoli is getting ready to take off. My mustard greens, chard, and nasturtium are exploding! Carrots and spinach next! Onions and arugula are everywhere! This is what we call spring in South TX :)


  1. Wow! Totally envious! i still have spinach growing, but everything else was frozen out. i am missing my Chard....we lived on it all summer/fall. Beautiful greens. :)

  2. wow...and i'm only dreaming of gardening right now. good to reconnect with ya~
