I'm here...I'm just busy trying to purge my Cubit of non-gardening chats...and that's difficult! I wind up reading and laughing at some of it.

Charley, you're welcome anytime you have a gardening question!

Good to see you Lynn...those succulents may be the only things to survive our TX heat!!!

Hi Sandi. I am looking forward to seeing the difference in growing conditions between Texas and Pacific Northwest.
I just found out yesterday that many in Texas are already finished with the first crop of tomatoes and won't have them again until fall. We only have one season which last from sometime in July through first killing frost in Oct or Nov. We just get started so late.
I have one little tomato so far out of about 12 plants. Very slow start this year. : (

Yes, we have a second growing season here. Tomatoes and peppers can be set out in early August (with a little shade for a few days). I have mixed results with tomatoes. Some yrs good...some yrs, I think I just neglect them too much. Too many other plants to take care of and little room for anything else.
Good to have you popping in. I'll be watching your forum when the temp drops and I have to figure out what to do with that fire pit full of succulents!

The firepit is one of the few things enjoying the heat, I think....

Trish are the getting some protection from the sun? Also want to be careful on watering in the hot part of the day, just little drinks, don't soak them.

Lynn- yes. They are in shade from about 10 on. That's been enough for about half of them. But sadly the other half just aren't making it.

I only water in the early morning or later evening.

We've just had horrid weather this year. Over a month of temps over 100 with less than an inch of rain since about March. I've lost too many plant friends that just weren't established well enough to deal with the heat that came too fast Crying

Us too, Debra. Last year was our first year in this house, but I was pregnant and Dave was doing good just to run the farm (I had a rough pregnancy, so didn't do very much). So, this was the first year for my landscaping. Uggg- the poor plants!
