I have griped too much about the reluctance of the fall season to make a sustained presence. Fall weather finally arrived in the Texas Upper Gulf Coast over the past weekend. It’s about time, as the winter season will officially start in about three weeks.
Typical gardening activities taper off at this time of year. Weather conditions over the last month of the year will likely provide something for everyone to like — be it pleasantly warm days or crisply cool days. The generous rounds of rainfall over the weekend will help ensure vigorous growth of cool season vegetables in the garden.
