Veggie Garden Update: April Weather Challenge

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

I’ve always heard in our area of NE Texas (planting zone 8) that you don’t dare plant until after Easter because a rogue frost can still swing through & kill your tender plants. Oh my goodness it was so hard for me to wait! So to pacify my need to garden I planted up my Indoor Greenhouse weeks ago. As I watched those tiny seedlings sprout I just got more excited.

Then I sat back & waited (im)patiently for Easter. Then the big day arrived, FINALLY I was able to plant – woo-hoo! Here is my April veggie garden update:

Happy Easter. Glory, Hallelujah – He Is RISEN!

by Texas Homesteader ~

Easter celebrations may look a little different this year. But celebrate where you are! Go ahead & let the kids hunt Easter eggs in the back yard, or even in the house like we used to do when the kids were little and rain hampered an outdoors celebration.

Attend your favorite church service online and praise the Lord! Celebrating shouldn’t be a gathering this year, but it certainly  can and should still be CELEBRATING!

Gatherings may be canceled, but Easter has certainly not been canceled!

For all my Christian friends - what a glorious day today is. Happy EASTER. He Is Risen! #TexasHomesteader

Happy EASTER.

Veggie Garden Update: May

by Texas Homesteader

May is typically a great month for veggie gardening in NE Texas.  In May the temps usually haven’t heated up too drastically. And in a normal year there’s still spring rains swinging through each week so you don’t typically have to struggle quite as much with your garden maintenance workload.

C’mon and walk with me through the garden & let’s see what’s “growing” on these days.
