when to plant

jamie1942July 12, 2010

I just moved to south east texas in april. It wwas the middle of april before I got a garden in and too late to plant tomatoes. I was wondering if anyone know the right time to plant a fall garden in this area. I live about 40 miles east of Waco. I planted popcorn, watermelons, cucumbers, and cantalope and they all are doing fantastic.I have a rich black sandy soil and it seems to be perfect for melons. I was wondering if anyone knew what other kind of vegetables it is good for.

If you want to you have time to plant tomato plants supposedly. Look up East TX gardening and they have a vegetable planting dates for our area, that's what I'm going by. You can still plant summer squash I know, since I had to replant that. Ugh. You can also plant bush beans. I just started all my cabbage and broccoli seedlings this week. Good Luck!
