Year we started our garden spring 1997

This is the second half of the year 2000 (Archives), and our third growing season here in South Texas. Since 1997, when Jana and I first started our new garden and to the present, we have photographed and documented it's progress as well as it's set backs, and have posted them on the internet. So far this year, I have posted many photos (over 350) and all in a brand new format. Now we start part two, again some of the pictures you might find repetitious, but this, I purposely did to show changes that the plants can go through over a few weeks, days or even hours, and to show the plants progress throughout our growing season here in Corpus Christi. Unlike the previous six months, thumbnail images will be larger and are all about 5k while larger images are posted at medium resolution and for the most, are all under 40k. Be sure and check out our Winter Garden Image Gallery 2001, as well as our Spring Garden Image Gallery 2001 & Summer Garden Image Gallery 2001and for plants, seeds, message boards, and other interest to the tropical gardener click on Links and Resource Page.

Thanks & Acknowledgements

I sincerely hope the people that have found these pages, have enjoyed and maybe somehow even learned a little something that may help in the future with their own plants and gardens. Throughout the years, we have met many new and enthusiast gardening friends, both in the cyber as well as the real world, and I'd like to thanks all of them (especially you!) that have email us, regarding our garden pages, with a warm and friendly reception. I try to reply to all email I receive but this past few months I have been preoccupied with collecting and cleaning seed and spending more time at the Rhapis Gardens and greenhouse. Sorry if I missed anyone and will try and keep up on my email in the future.

Again thanks,
Gary
