Alan Kirby, Cherokee County EC: Kirby, his wife, Rebecca, and the 1959 John Deere he inherited. “I have been growing gardens my entire life in Cherokee County. This was my best year ever. I had a 21-pound return for each pound of seed potatoes planted.”
Web Extra: Susan Horn, Pedernales EC: “Due to the deer population in western Travis County, it’s hard to grow a legit vegetable garden. I grew these tomatoes in a hanging basket.”
We planted the seed with our readers, and now it’s time to reap the harvest. We’re willing to bet the farm that this crop of photos shows Texans what we bring to the table. Now, let’s plow ahead and see what your part of the state yields.
The Black Heritage Society in Houston holds its annual Original MLK Day Parade January 21, starting in front of Minute Maid Park. The celebration continues after the parade with the MLK Jr. Taste of Houston festival, also at Minute Maid Park.
