Official State Soil: Houston Black 
November 24th 

Dear Nicky & Jess,
Houston Black soils really are everything they're cracked up to be. When it is dry here (which is often!), cracks open up big enough to swallow Aunt Maude's tulip bulb planter. Although it's not great for building, Houston Black soils do support miles of wonderful prairie grasslands and rangelands that give Texas its distinctive landscape. 

Yours truly,
Uncle Buster

P.S. Be sure the garden is covered with shredded leaves.
