    Hi! I live up in Kingwood which is often slightly different on the zones maps for gardening and I wonder if your book is still the best to start with? I’m new to gardening for food and would like to make sure if I buy your version published in 2019 another doesn’t come out just afterward. Since I’m on a budget I just want to be sure it lasts me a while! Thank you for sharing so much great knowledge.

      April: I am very much aware of the differences in temperatures and plant needs both veggies and fruits in different places. The reason that it took 14 years to update the 2005 book was this awareness and not knowing what to do about it. The 2019 book is my attempt–the first around to make it accurate for different locations all over Southeast Texas. The book shows how to adjust for local climate differences. The fruits data relevant to Kingwood in the book are based on 1992-2012 weather data (not the 1980-2010 in USDA zones) and the veggie schedule data are based on 2007-2017 data, so they should be accurate for awhile. I expect if I can (at some point) that I will do an update to the weather tables for 28 sites based on 2000-2020 for fruits and 2017-2027 for veggies. If so they will appear when I have them in new printings of the book and also on this website. Neither is likely for at least two years and the veggie not for many years. The book realizes climate is changing and also temperatures at Intercontinental, Liberty, and Cleveland where I have data are not exactly Kingwood, so it explains how to figure out what to do if you know your own temperatures. That is, whether you can grow papayas (or not) or when to plant beets.
