JM, First, welcome to the Forum from California! glad you\'re here

You stated you just turned over your garden. Is it an in-dirt garden plot? Not a raised bed garden? Is it 8' x 10'? Are you wanting to convert to Square Foot Gardening with raised beds filled with Mel's Mix?

Being in Texas means you can grow a lot of different plants. The usual tomato, pepper and eggplant, plus: lettuce, radish, broccoli and other cabbage-family plants, Swiss chard, beans, summer squash, winter squash, carrot, parsnip, beet, cucumber, corn, onion, garlic, cantaloupe, peas, and all kinds of herbs like parsley, cilantro, oregano, marjoram, rosemary, and thyme to name a few.

Hi JM. Welcome also from Atlanta, GA!

You should look at Has55's posts... Lots of great info there & I believe he's in your area. But what it really gets down to is: What do you like to eat?

Have fun! (We like photos, btw... ;-) )

Dwarf, curly kale. It grows for me 12 months a year, through dark, wet winters and long, brutal summers. Extremely nutritious, versatile, and easy to grow. (Also pretty I love you )

welcome  from Redding, CA.

Welcome,jm. I live in Denton Tx , down the road from Ft. Worth, Tx. 
Howard Garrent has an excellent Monthly organic Garden Calendar that walks you thru what to plant and do in your garden and landscape for our area. I find it quite helpful when I started out in field gardening and SFGing. I do a lot of experiments now since I know what I want to eat and not want to eat. Look at this link and find out what will work for you. Also, another thing to think about how much time you have to attend to your garden, In SFG, you are not stress out with fighting weeds and usually it's the same with insects. I still work and also involved with building a staffing company, so my time is limited. SFG works for me. I don't plant squash, because I don't have time to look for the squash bug eggs because they explode in growth so fast.
I also encourage to sign up for his newsletter. My city just ban roundup and has asked him to show them how to transition to the organic program.

Hi!  Melons and tomatoes, unless you don’t like them...There are so many kinds of melons...a new plant for me until I joined here was ground cherries, they are delish but kinda low to the ground so I put them in a container on a table...easier to harvest.

Welcome to the forum. I like to suggest cherry/grape tomatoes because they produce a lot of fruit and grow well without the challenges of blossom end rot.

I second the motion. When everything else goes wrong, cherry/grape tomatoes will keep you growing. I love you
