Texas Fall Garden

I finally planted my fall garden. The summer heat here in Texas was painfully hot and long.
My summer garden burned up quickly, sad to say.
Two days ago I planted: squash, lettuce, chard, carrots, bush beans, pole beans, and pumpkins.
I had to add some old fence atop my square foot garden to keep my chickens out. In the spring, they tore up my garden not once, not twice but 3 times before I finally got things to start growing.
I am excited to report that not even 48 hours since planting my seeds, the lettuce is already sprouting!
Behold, the power of worm poop.
I will keep you posted on the progress.
A light drizzle of rain has done it good today. With a high near 90, I am thrilled, perfect for germination.
I have a feeling fall gardening might be easier than summer gardening in Texas.
I plan on using some garden cloches should we have an early frost.
