Is It Too Late to Migrate for the Summer?

Gardening in Houston in the summertime is no fun. It is pointless to try to nurture anything through the upper 90°, no rain days of June, July, and August. The high on July 1 hit 101° and the Houston area saw the driest June on record: at Bush Intercontinental Airport, 0.08 inch fell over the month, beating a 1934 record of 0.12 inch. You spend more money on water than you save on groceries by growing your own vegetables. Even Camille Waters, the “Lettuce Queen,” takes a hiatus from growing gourmet lettuces and herbs and spends summers in Mexico.

  • Solution: Grow a rock-garden and ask Fred Flinstone to built you your very own Stonehenge!!!

    Then ask your neighbors and other citizens of Planet Earth for an entrance fee to see it and to have their picture taken.

    In this way, you'll get rich and you can go grocery-shopping and buy ANYTHING you like, like that expensive brand of toothpaste that you have been wanting to buy since you were a tiny little boy!!!
