The definitive, comprehensive, local guide to Food Gardening in Houston and Southeast Texas, focusing on organic gardening. Upated in August 2019, this popular guide is now in its 14th edition! It explains what experts have learned over the decades and helps us evaluate online advice and interpret our own observations and experiences. It also provides us a way to adjust our planting practices to our increasingly unstable climate and to your garden's regional location. Gardening can enrich our lives beyond measure. In a Southeast Texas organic garden, gourmet fruits, vegetables, spices, and culinary herbs can be harvested year round. Flower bouquets and other features attract songbirds, lizards, butterflies, dragonflies, and other beneficials to make their daily rounds. By welcoming and regenerating nature, our families get not just an increasing amount of healthful and delicious vegetables and fruits, but also joy, peace of mind, and excellent exercise. Dr Bob Randall has been helping Texas gardeners and farmers since 1986: teaching hundreds of classes, working with over 150 community gardens, and advising all over the region. Bob is a food systems anthropologist and permaculture designer.
