Hi George and all,
    I gotten started on the fall garden plantings. So far 5 -20ft rows
of potatos, one row of green bunching onions, half a row of
lettuce(Black Seeded Simpson, Market garden and Buttercrunch), half a
row of yellow squash, and 2 rows of Top Crop green beans. Much more
planned but waiting for cooler weather. Last year I followed the
reccomended planting dates for Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Brussels
Sprouts. Planted in mid to late August, and watched 'em all burn up.
Last year was normal for high temps. Not this year.Still less than 3"
since April 19th.
    We do plan on having an authentic for real Texas BBQ, beef brisket,
pork sausage, and chicken. All cooked over hand cut Mesquite wood with
the bark still on for all that good smoke flavor. Lots of homemade
potato salad, pinto beans with homemade salsa, cake and pie, umm! Wish
you were here. The more the merrier.
    We hope that everyone has a safe and happy Labor Day.
