Annual Fall Plant Sale

The Master Gardeners’ Annual Fall Plant Sale is Saturday and will feature a wide variety of plants for the home landscape and garden ranging from citrus, vegetable transplants, perennials and bulbs.

The arrival of autumn tends to be a bumpy landing along the Texas Upper Gulf Coast region.

While autumn technically commenced at 1:50 a.m. on Sept. 23. I typically measure the arrival of autumn by three milestones: When I need to turn the heater on in my car (weather forecasts indicate we will likely experience two cool fronts this week), and when my home air conditioner gets to “rest” into the early afternoon hours of a day.
