Fall Garden preparation in Houston, Texas

Fall Garden preparation in Houston, Texas

Following the summer garden season, I let my garden get out of control with weeds. Today with my wife and father-in-law we pulled all the weeds, amended the soil and applied new weed cloth to prepare for what will be a great fall garden in Houston, Texas.

This type of gardening is hard work and not something that you can really delegate to someone else to do.

The fall garden this year will have 4-5 varieties of tomatoes, and 3-4 varieties of sweet pepper plants. All ready to go with my Fall garden now!

    I hope you and yours remain safe through hurricane Harvey.

    Pepper starts have failed under grow lights, and i don’t know why. Have ordered some new seeds, and will replant. This gives me about 4 weeks to get them into the permanent containers. Tell you one thing I learned, the Sun Gold cherry-sized tomato is the best one I have every tasted! My word, they are delicious; the best, absolutely! Good ole Houston. "Air you can wear!"

    My phone died, lost your address. Got a new phone. Have a money order for seeds, any left?

    I always figured doing all this makes each tomato cost about $10 by the time you are done. Is it really profitable to do all this work in Houston? Maybe I’m missing something.

    I am in Tulsa till mid September so My fall garden will be getting a late start. I have a Cherokee Purple from a fellow gardener in Tulsa. I will harvest the seeds and give it a try. My peppers are doing great and should last well into fall/winter. I am adding dinosaur kale with 4 or 5 varieties of lettuce. Should be a great fall if I am not to late on getting things started.

    Thanks for the video. This is a little late, but please thank your daughter for mailing my seeds. Looking forward to fall gardening!

    Thank You! We northerners will enjoy your gardening since ours is coming to a close:-). This is my 2nd year having landscape fabric and it’s a good thing. I wish I had wood chips, but getting them delivered in PA is a trick:-(. That’s important that You enriched your soil before putting down the weed fabric. I didn’t do this, but am now. I did convert grass to crops and I will enrich that space with radish this winter. I have buckwheat planted there now. I’m hoping for collards, but my end of July planting may have been too late.

    Great vid liked

    I live in Albuquerque and I tried the back to Eden gardening for the first time this year and had great results. The soil stated moist and little or no weeds. We have 100 degree weather no rain and my tomatoes are like a jungle

    I’m watching ur video while Harvey is just offshore. Hope you get thru it ok. My brother lives in between Spring & The Woodlands, so I’ve been glued to radar. I’m in Round Rock, so I’ve prepped my garden & coop for possible flooding.

  20. Robert Chaffee on November 15, 2019 at 6:13 am

    Btw.. Planted sweet pepper seed 2 wks ago and no sprouts. Should I freeze the seeds first and place in the freezer bag a paper towel moistened with hydrogen peroxide until they sprout? (seeds may be old)

  21. Og maco Sheesh on November 15, 2019 at 6:15 am

    Harvey is going to dump 20+ inches in a few days on you

  22. Irina Finkelshteyn on November 15, 2019 at 6:17 am

    Hi Jeff! When will you start planting tomatoes seeds for your fall garden?

  23. shashakeeleh on November 15, 2019 at 6:18 am

    Jeff, you still afloat down there? Got about 7" total in the last 2.5 days here.

  24. jafarym77 on November 15, 2019 at 6:21 am

    What are you planning on growing for fall?

  25. quest 77051 on November 15, 2019 at 6:23 am

    i’m new to gardening. what’s your opinion on using wal mart cloth bags full of potting mix and placed in a kiddie pool? i wanted to start that way to see how things work out then do a raised bed. be well.

  26. Marcy RP on November 15, 2019 at 6:25 am

    Do you not have problems with ants taking over pots? Everything I planted in pots got taken over by fire ants! I tore out the plants and killed all the ants in the pots, but that means THAT soil can’t be used now! Texas and ants!

    Good video, I hate to weed my garden too

  28. Michelle M on November 15, 2019 at 6:27 am

    What preparations do you make to protect your potted plants during tropical storms?

  29. true grit on November 15, 2019 at 6:27 am

    Why not put paper or cardboard on the bottom ? It’s good for the worms .. Just s thought .

    Sweaty ugly gardening looks the same there as it does in Georgia.

  31. Betty Round on November 15, 2019 at 6:31 am
