I know it all depends on what you're planting... but if I were to start with plants (vs. seeds) are there things I can plant now? Zone 8, aka hell. Um, I mean South Texas.

I just wondered. I'd like to plant some cherry or grape tomatoes, some green beans, carrots, don't know what else. Just thought I'd have a look at what the plant places have as far as baby plants..

Sweet 100 tomatoes would maybe make it, we get tons of them and pretty quickly. Not sure about the others. W/the heat you have, you might have to wait for some cooler weather plants now. You could always go w/herbs.

South TX I'm assuming your daytime highs still avg in the 90-100's?

If so, I think you might have to wait till at least August to plant IMO......

I'm in Zone 7B and just started another round of 6 tomato plants in 3 planters (each are 16in in diameter) I got better boy and husky cherry tomato transplants from Walmart going...

They LOVE the weather here now (typical day is high of 90 and humid)...
