Welcome to real summer in North Central Texas. If this is your first year to live in the Rockwall County area; trust us, the cool pleasant days leading up to mid July were not normal. We all got spoiled, even those of us who have lived here all our lives. So tell your gardens that it is the survival of the fittest, water wisely and know that a cool front will blow through in about 2 months, normally.
You can talk to a certified Master Gardener at our Information Booth during the Rockwall Farmers Market on these dates: August 21 and September 18.
Master Gardeners are available on Wednesdays, 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office. Stop by 915 Whitmore Dr., Suite B and a Rockwall County Master Gardener will be on hand to research questions and provide gardening information. If you can not come by in person, call 972-204-7660 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and a Master Gardener will respond to you in a timely manner. If the volunteers can not answer your questions on the spot, they will continue to research or will consult with a specialist that has expertise in the subject matter.
If you would like to be added to our email mailing list, please send your name and email address to: email@example.com.
