Hmm -- I wondering if I'm posting in the right regional forum. According to the gardening chart I looked at Texas is listed in the lower South. I'm wondering if I should change to here since I'm at the same latitude as Dallas? Thoughts anyone?

On a side note, I don't really consider Dallas as part of the "South Plains". The climate is extremely different from the weather we get up here on the South Plains (West Texas, Texas Panhandle, New Mexico, etc.).

Hi BB,

Hang in there, we're working on getting the regionals defined more clearly so everyone knows where they fit. I hope to roll it out soon.

Once the regionals are defined, members will be able to connect with others within their region's forum to connect with members with similar climates. There's just no way to create a climate 'forum' for everyone to fit into.

We're adjusting and adapting to the new forum software as we go, and your feedback is apprecitated.

Thanks
boffer

Hrmm well Dallas is blessed to be down at 600ft altitude and have a lot of humidity. Up here on the south plains we're at 1000 feet or higher, low humidity, and what we call a stiff breeze other folks collect insurance money for haha. I'd say anyone west of Sweetwater and north of I-20 in Texas could be on the south plains. I drive all over that area as well as my area in Eastern NM and it's all pretty much the same. I agree with Boffer. The regional stuff is shaping out slowly and will be better soon.

I grew up in the Dallas area. When we moved up to the panhandle it took us only one day to figure the wind thing out. All of my mom's patio and outdoor furniture blew away... we never did find all of it. We understood immediately why everyone on the street had concrete patio furniture outside! Texas in south plains?

Ugh... tweet from the weatherman just now in regards to wind. Peak Gusts with the virga showers... 61 @ O'Donnell, 56 @ Denver City, 53 @ Amherst, 52 @ Graham, & 48 @ Reese Center.

Every Spring I always say I'm moving somewhere where it doesn't blow like this all the time. Lost a 30X30 corn crop last year to this stupid wind.

Ah, the memories. Just looking through this forum to see what I should have known the last few years as I was trying to garden in Pyote, TX (follow the NM state line down to where it would hit I-20). We lived in old WWII Army housing and the wind would blow straight through!
