Well, OK, I am a long time gardener, 30 years plus. And for the past 2 summers here in Houston, I have felt like a Novice, at times with my entire patio garden just keeling over and dieing from the heat. Any help would be appreciated, but you have to understand that on my South-Facing Apartment patio, I have recorded High Temperatures in the SHADE of over 130 degrees F. Thinking my thermometer had to be off, I checked with 2 other devices and found that number to be accurate. Help!! Is this what global warming will be like, or have I just lost my gardening sense?

Welcome! I have a daughter in Texas and that is what she's experienced this last summer. I'm so afraid it will become the norm. We were warmer than usual at our homes too. I'm afraid we will be forced to grow more heat loving plants and lose our old favorites.
