Q. A credit card company sued me and has a judgment against me. Now it has garnished my bank account, and all the money in the account has been taken. I thought there was no garnishment in Texas?

A. With the exception of obligations for child support and student loans, Texas law prohibits wage garnishment. In other words, a creditor who sues for a credit card debt cannot garnish your wages through your employer. Creditors, however, can garnish a bank checking or savings account.

Love tomatoes? We’re lucky here in Southeast Texas because in July, we get a chance to grow tomatoes again. We can grow them first in the spring and plant again in July to get tomatoes until Old Man Frost comes to visit.

Tomatoes planted now should be planted deeply and kept well mulched and watered. Tomatoes do love the heat, but they can even tolerate a little shade from that scorching afternoon sun.
