Question: 815-3612
I lived in Fall River and was amazed at the bogs and how they were built in the Cape. I know it probably cannot be done here in Austin, TX. Buzz

Mort's Answer:
I know that there are mesas in parts of Texas that have large apple orchards. Bogs require huge amounts of water. They are generally built in swamps near lakes. Trenches are carved out to allow for irrigation and flooding for harvesting. Your soils would require a great deal of modification. Cooler nights in the fall help the fruit ripen. If there are mesas with lakes on them, you might stand a chance.
