Can I still start some veggies here in TX?

Post  TXGirl on 10/9/2011, 12:21 pm

I am located near Dallas, TX and it's still warm here. I don't expect a hard freeze for a while still. I would like to go ahead and start a Fall garden. Is it too late to plant even though it's still warm here? And should I plant things that grow fast so I can eat them up before it gets too cold or are there things I can plant now so that they will come up next spring? I was thinking, carrots, baby spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens, and some romaine? This will be my first garden so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thinking

I think you're on track with the lettuces and spinach. Many of these leafy vegetables can be harvested in 30 days or so. I'm planting some as well.

Why not give the carrots a try as well? You may not get full growth, but baby carrots are sweet.
