I really consider watermelons to be out of season in October. However, Texas can boast of a long growing season so we picked the last melon the first week in October. It was one of the best we've had this year. Grown in my backyard. You can do it too!
We could not have asked for a better day. On Saturday the weather was lovely, temperature high of 78°. The perfect weather for planting young peach and persimmon trees around the community garden at the Discovery Garden behind the library in Cedar Hill, Texas. The trees were donated by the Red Oak Makerspace. The group is dedicated to fostering community and helping people to do things on their own. Volunteers from Red Oak Makerspace and volunteers from the library and the community garden were on hand to plant the new trees. We had a good time.

Welcome to my gardening blog. My father passed to me a love for gardening. I wanted to share this passion with my girls, so they would know the origin of their food. (not the local grocery store). So, I dedicated myself to giving them what my father gave me; and if I can inspire someone to garden, the reward is even greater.
