Year Round Vegetables, Fruits and Flowers for Metro Houston’s New Edition Coming

I am beginning to work on the 13th edition of Year Round Vegetables, Fruits and Flowers for Metro Houston.  Do you have any suggestions about how to improve it?

The present edition (with the yellow cover) was written mostly in 2004-5 and many parts need updating.  In addition, the chapter on ornamentals needs major changes, so for the first time I am expecting a co-author.
