Sometimes, you just need a little reminder or a nudge in the right direction to achieve success.
Gardening in Central Texas can be a challenge. The temperature, rainfall, and soil types have a wide range of variables, often to the extreme. This is in addition to the rapid urbanization of the Austin area and the heat-island effect.
