Vegetable Garden Spring 2018

The goal of this garden is to develop a recommended variety list of vegetables for Fort Bend County by trialing a wide variety of vegetables over a period of three years. Due to the mild climate in Fort Bend County vegetables can be grown year-round. During the trial growing period no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides are used. The soil is amended with leaf mold compost and cottonseed meal bi-annually. A drip irrigation system is used in the beds to ensure efficient watering.

There are examples of raised-bed style gardens and traditional row gardens. The raised beds are built using a variety of materials, including cedar, cinder block, and wood-lined decorative bricks.
