In Texas, it is possible to have both spring and fall gardens, but they need to be managed differently. This publication focuses on how to grow vegetables in the fall.

If your spring garden was successful, the same location should work well in the fall. When planning a new garden, keep in mind that vegetable crops must have at least 8 hours of direct sun each day and should be planted where the soil drains well.
