Spring comes eairly in the Lone Star State

There they are leaves!

Spring comes early in our new garden. This was taken March first, the leaves are in bursting out mode, and we are seeing more and more birds. My camera doesn’t take good pics of birds but I will get a new camera soon. The pear tree was bare and old looking when we first got here, we didn’t know if it was alive or dead and thought we might have to prune off a lot of branches to get it to bloom but look at it now!

The nights are cool here down to 40’s or 30’s but it warms up to 60’s and 70’s in the afternoon and we even had 80’s over the weekend! This is very pleasant and we are still adjusting, it is hard not to think maybe it is too early to plant vegetables, but the truth is that we are too late for onions shallots potatoes and carrots which are planted in January around here!

This is a gardeners paradise, if we can figure how to mitigate the heat and drought we have some ideas. We want to use shade cloth, drip irrigation and plane old shade from the pear tree so far the pear tree plan is coming along!

Hope you liked the pictures.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
    or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
