New home owner in East Texas, too late to plant ...
I am a new home owner south of I-30 between Sulphur Springs and Mount Pleasant. My land is heavily grassed and sandy. I have a good well so I can supplement rainfall as required.
I seem to have missed tomato and watermelon season so, what FOOD crops should I consider for the fall? Should I consider a "hoop house" to 'over-winter' leafy greens and similar things?
If I rent a roto-tiller, will that be enough to get rid of the grass? Or, will I need to use chemicals which I would like to avoid? I have a little Kubota tractor so, a small disc or plow is an option. I also have a drag harrow for a prepped seed bed.
