Sweet corn

The high winds that accompanied last week’s thunderstorms inflicted damage on trees as well as many tall-growing vegetables including sweet corn (pictured), okra, peppers, etc.

Even though we are less than three weeks away from the “official” start of summer, 11:54 a.m. June 21, as every Texan knows, when June arrives so does summertime.

Even though our summers tend to be on the warm side, productive home gardeners can still gather colorful bouquets from the landscape and fresh vegetables from the garden.
