Cover Your Plants To Extend the Season

For plants that are a little too tender to survive the winter in your climate, you can still grow them with a little protection.

Here in Texas, I have recently learned that you must plant out tomatoes by March because the heat in June just stops production. This perforated plastic is a popular product because it protects the young plants from wind, but lets them get the light without overheating

Thanks guys!

I'm not sure how much cold protection you need in Texas, but I was in a similar zone to you two (right on the 7b/8a line), so you can probably grow greens and herbs all winter with something like my little tunnels. Thumbs up
