That's about what I figured but I'm going to tempt nature and give them a shot. Only one row of ten seeds to see if I can beat the first freeze of fall. Fellow gardeners, if we get an early frost you can blame me for riling up the horticulture gods. Come September, I'll let you know how they turned out.

My garden is liking this rain! Just harvested some beets a few days ago (planted them on 4/19 - they got a slow start as I planted them so early). Also a few green beans - will be a lot more in a about a week (planted them on 5/27). Cocozelle squash (like zucchini) will be starting to be ready in a few days (planted them on 5/27). I have been harvesting green onions for a while now - planted them in March. Kohlrabi will be a while yet.

Rain is good but this year it's just too much. There is a spring running down the hill from my garden, with so much water it has flooded my raised beds. I have not been able to plant in 2 of my 3 beds, as they are under water now. Unreal! This spring has always been there, but in the 20 years I have been there it has never produced enough to flood the garden. I guess I am planting rice this year!
