    Where in Wyoming? Cheyenne is about 45 minute drive from here (heading up to Glendo in about 30 minutes)

    Yup...they may be far enough that they are one or two zones lower than you.

    Awesome!!


    I'm a big fan of the "square foot gardner". Even though I do have a large yard, I still use the 4 x 4 and the 4 x 8 cedar boxes.

    Our planting season starts late August (central florida).

    Yeah, the square foot method seems to work well. Why is your planting season so late? Seems like it should be earlier than mine.

    The cantaloupe is really starting to vine out...watermelon is doing OK. We're finally getting some squash producing, which I'm really happy about. We bought a couple praying mantis egg pods a few weeks ago and I saw our first one the other day.

    planting here is in late August because the cooler weather begins in late October (mid 70's).

    Too damn hot during the summer except for things like beans, peas and cherry tomatoes.

    During the summer months( May thru August), I cover my gardens with black plastic and "solarize" the soil. Kills the pests without using chemicals.

    So, here's the latest. We cleared out several areas to plant more stuff for a fall harvest...in addition, things are growing well. We've had some issues with the pole green beans so we pulled out half of them and replaced with bush beans to see if we have better luck. The eggplant and okra are doing well and the sunflowers did good. We now have 3 cantaloupe growing, but the watermelon seems to be lagging behind. The tomatillos are starting to produce...we have about 20 "lanterns" formed up with tomatillos growing inside. The patty pan squash has gotten huge and almost taking over that box. I think next year the squash are going to get their own space.
