Now is the time for all good gardeners to come to the aid of their gardens. That means we are pulling up the dead and dying plants that couldn’t take the heat of August. We are adding compost to the beds to enrich the tired dirt. We are applying mulch in areas that have thinned out from rain and traffic. And we are planning what to plant next to take advantage of the fall growing season in North Texas.

Bright Lights Swiss Chard is a popular and easy fall vegetable to grow from seed.
You can talk to a certified Master Gardener at our Information Booth during the Rockwall Farmers Market on 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.
