Gardening in the winter isn't something everyone can do. It is one of the few things living in the metroplex allows. Sure our summer this year killed almost everything but this winter has been a great growing time. We've got some beets, cilantro and plenty of herbs thriving everywhere. Sure they're not as glamorous as red tomatoes or majestic sun flowers but carrots, beets, cabbage, peas and many other veggies can be grown and taste so much better in the fall and winter months. Continued planting also keeps the soil up and keeps weeds down.
