We hadn't realized that Lubbock wasn't actually in Texas but 11 inches from the Sun on the surface of Mercury. Good to know. #itssohot #notevensummeryet

And the winner of our summer 2018 giveaway is...Erica Hill Turner! Thanks so much for playing and being a part of the TTU Plant and Soil Greenhouse following! We'll go in and comment on your comment and send you a message to set up a time for you to come get your succulents! For the other 200-or-so of you who participated, thanks for being involved as well! You made it a lot of fun. Stay tuned later in the summer for anyother fun giveaway and for information about our fall plant sale.

Sinks are a fun place to nap, apparently. Before you ask, we resisted the urge to turn on the faucet. It was a close thing, but we managed it.

It's like a planter full of sunshine...and a few ants...

Our own Dr. Joey Young from the TTU Department of Plant and Soil Science talks summer turf tips with Tierra Neubaum this morning on Look Around Lubbock on FOX34 Lubbock!

What's up, early risers? If you're up and about, flip over to Good Day Lubbock on FOX34 Lubbock. We'll be on a few times between 6 and 9 this morning chatting with Tierra Neubaum about tips for your summer landscape!

Hey, friends! The semester is officially over and our seniors are graduated, so we thought we'd celebrate with a giveaway! One lucky Facebooker will win this awesome succulent planter and a bonus high five this week. Here's what you have to do to enter: 1. Like our page TTU Plant and Soil Science Greenhouse and Gardens. 2. Like this post. 3. Tag a friend in the comments. 4. Share this post publicly to your page. That's it! Be aware that we will be unable to ship this prize, so it will have to be picked up here at the greenhouse. If you're unable to get it yourself or have someone come get it for you, we'll have to pick a new winner. We'll choose a winner at 12:15 pm CST on Thursday (5/24) in a live Facebook video, so you have until then to enter. Tune in to see if you've won! Help us celebrate Summer 2018 and get to 500 "likes" and be a part of this fun giveaway. Good luck!

Over 1.5 inches of rain at the garden this weekend! How much did you get?

Good morning, Texas Tech University! Happy first day of graduation! Ceremonies start at 3 today and we'd love for you to come take some pictures in our garden! You're welcome to go where you like, but we've put up some signage throughout the garden in places that we think would look really great as a backdrop for your shots. Tag us with @texastechgreenhouse and #ttugreenhouse so we can celebrate with you! #texastech #ttuplantandsoilscience #graduation2018
