With an already scorching summer, the drought has exacerbated that already problematic growing season for the home gardener in Texas.

Fortunately for San Antonio, sitting on the edge of both Central and South Texas, a second growing season begins right now, and it is arguably the most productive of the growing seasons.

Beets, peas, broccoli, cabbage and many more vegetables thrive in the Texas winter. We answer your questions on how to take advantage and get the most out of your winter garden.
