August is here and the heat is far from gone here in DFW. Fortunately there are still lots of plants that can be either started or worked on for a nice fall garden.
I've already mentioned okra recently but we shouldn't forget carrots and squash at this time of year. Carrots especially have a short growing time and you can expect a carrot harvest in a few months. Winter squash is good to plant now too for a nice harvest.
Remember to drink plenty of water while in the garden and use sensible sun protection methods. You want to keep your plants and yourself from getting too hot or scorched.
