Re: QUESTION: What vegetables best to grow this fall and when

I also live in San Antonio. Last week I planted four cherry tomatoe seeds and four big boy hybrid seeds. So far three of the cherries have popped through and two of the big boys. The secret: have them outside in half and half shade and sun. I water them each morning with captured rain water. Also, I use the plastic bottles from my wife's prescription meds for starter pots. This allows you to see the amount of water the plants are getting as the containers are clear. When the plants are big enough for transplant, just break open the containers with channel-locks.
Hope this helps.
