Summer is more than half over, but in East Texas the heat is capable of lingering for a long time and we have been able to wear shorts on Christmas more than once. I am trying to get another round of summer and fall veggies planted, hoping the weather will be right for a second harvest. I pulled up my green beans two days ago and my cucumbers have take a a very quick turn downward. This has happened before where I am ready to throw a few things in the ground, but the seeds aren't carried locally because the store have cleared out isle space for school supplies. Being the ultra cheap perpetually broke gardener that I am, I have broken into the sealed pouch of survival seeds I was given to write about by Hometownseeds.com. I wrote about these a couple years ago when I first started gardening and blogging in a sponsored post. Now four years later I will bust them open and use them for my mid summer and fall planting.
