A friend and I have just decided to start up a blog as a place to catalog our experiences with gardening in Texoma. A little strange to be starting in the dead of winter, but you'd be surprised. Spring comes early to this region, and the stores already have annuals and veg plants out. Very silly though. One thing I've learned about Texoma is that there's always one last frost before winter finally gives up. And it's usually in late Feb or March when everyone starts putting their plants out. Last year I had my kitchen counter covered with trays of plants that I had bought too early and had to rush inside the house before a late frost swooped in to claim them. Stupid things spent about 2 weeks in my kitchen before I could get them out again! So I'll lay low this year and wait until I'm sure the freezing temps are over.
