Planning my Gardens in Lubbock, TX

 
Lubbock is in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7.  A welcomed change from Thornton's Zone 5.  

The growing season here is longer, which means that I can put seeds and transplants in the ground a couple of months earlier than I did in Colorado.  It also means that I can harvest to Thanksgiving and maybe even beyond.

When I surveyed the backyard, I visualized 3 distinct gardens.  First on my to do list for to build raised beds for veggies.  In Colorado I had an extensive iris and rose garden so I wanted to create a garden to feature them.   I also has a special area for butterflies, inspired by the Butterfly Pavilion.   Putting up bird feeder was also a given.

 
Hubby built 20 raised beds (I helped)
