Freeze December 2022

About a week after tornadoes touched down in Grapevine, TX, in December 2022, the first day of winter ushered in an arctic blast, and North Texas experienced a few days of freezing temps.   Our once lush, colorful gardens were reduced to either brown, crispy sticks or piles of mush.   

Back in 2017 I published a post about that year's freeze and how to determine if your plants are dead or dormant after the freeze.

Fall Newsletter

Even though 1980 and 2011 still hold the top spots for record heat and drought in North Texas, 2022 was no slouch in the hot and dry department!    I'm perfectly happy that we did not end up bumping those years out of their unpleasant positions, and I'm very grateful for recent rains and a little cooler temps.  

So now that we've made it through what was, nonetheless, a very challenging summer, we can look forward to fall and get back to doing what we love.

Happy gardening this fall.....
