Growing Herbs in Texas: Replant Herb Beds This Fall

| 11/10/2011 5:00:00 PM

A norther, or a cold front, blew in this morning around 4 a.m. The wind is strong and the temperatures dipped into the 50s. It's quite chilly outside. It's not cold enough for the plants to suffer, and I believe they're enjoying the cool temperatures.

We've had a little rain in the last several weeks, and the place has really greened up. Compare the photos in this issue with the ones from a month ago. What a difference!

Since the weather has cooled off, I've been refurbishing and replanting my herb beds. So far I've added salad burnet, winter savory, lavender, nasturtiums, bronze fennel, Mexican mint marigold, cilantro, parsley, sorrel, butterfly weed and white yarrow ... I think that's it. Oh, and I seeded some dill.
