On the island of Galveston, Texas this week you will find Revival and Reflections, events to commemorate Hurricane Ike last September. The people who live on the island and the area as a whole have made great progress in putting their lives and their properties back together.
If you are at a point, like many, where the repairs on your home or property are complete or nearly complete, it is now time to consider your landscape. The saltwater that damaged or destroyed your plants may still remain in your soil. Consider having your soil tested if you have not done this already, to see if any nutrients need to be replenished, and what the level of salinity is.
Soil Testing form. For instructions, fee, drop off or mailing address contact: Galveston County Extension Office, 5115 Highway 3, Dickinson, Texas. Ph: 281-534-3413, ext. 1, 2.
