|Happy New Year to All Piggies! I'm grilling pork chops to have with blackeyed peas today. Seems a bit wrong.
The freezing rain stopped a few miles northwest of where we live. The ranch had some ice this morning when my husband went over to feed.
I like to start tomatoes the first week of January followed by peppers and eggplants. I want to plant salvias and asclepias right away too. I got the boards for raised beds last year about the time it got too hot to work outside, so I still have beds to build. Peas need to go in a few weeks as well as onions. There's no way to know if spring will come early or late, so I just start enough tomatoes to plant again if an April freeze wipes them out. Crazy Texas weather!
