Zone 9
Year we started our garden spring 1997

This is our third growing season here in South Texas, back in the spring and summer of 1997 when Jana and I first started our new garden and to the present, we have photographed and documented it's progress as well as it's set backs and have posted them on the internet. Now the year 2000 is Archived, with many photos (over 600) and all in a brand new format. Starting in July the thumbnail images will be larger and also in a new directory Main Menu Page July - December. Some of the pictures you might find repetitious by nature, but this, I purposely did, to show changes that the plants can go through over a few days or even hours, and to show the plants progress throughout our growing season here in Corpus Christi. Thumbnail images are all less than 3k while larger images are posted at medium resolution and for the most, are all under 40k. Be sure and check out our Links and Resource Page , for plants, seeds, message boards, and other interest to the tropical gardener and while you're at it, check out The most sought after Rhapis very expensive, but pups are now available at a much lower cost, although still not cheap! Also I have a small section on Palm Oddities that might be of interest to some. Plus a lot more....

Thanks & Acknowledgements

I sincerely hope the people that have found these pages, have enjoyed and maybe somehow even learned a little something that may help in the future with their own plants and gardens. Throughout the years, we have met many new and enthusiast gardening friends, both in the cyber as well as the real world, and I'd like to thanks all of them (especially you!) that have email us, regarding our garden pages, with a warm and friendly reception.

Again thanks,
Gary
