October Spring Subtropical Garden Tour

Mid Spring in our Subtropical Veggie Patch (VLOG)

Mid spring here in our Subtropical veggie patch is when we really start thinking about our Summer Plantings. It's been a bit unseasonably wet which but things are still growing well. In this video we do a video tour of how everything is growing in October in our subtropical veggie patch.
