It’s fun to look back at the older pictures to see how fast they grow.

I'd say do it.
I planted three cucumber plants when I put the garden in. One died pretty fast, another after a few weeks and the last one looked pretty bad a couple of weeks ago. I gave it a MASSIVE dose of miracle grow and it's coming around. It has blossoms and is climbing the chicken wire I put near it just for it to climb. I'll be late planting will work in your climate.
I'm going to plant beets for late fall pretty soon. We'll see how they do.

Know I said wasn't gonna plant late crop this time. Was thinking about just planting couple hills of squash and cucumbers. Well guess I ain't learned yet. But, I did just plant 3 rows. Still got to till between the 2 upper rows. Top pic is me doing some bushhogging.

Garden update. This is when I got to hot and fell out. Was out of it for close to 3 hours. I never should've been out there at 2:00 that day.

Been going to PT last couple weeks for my back. Between wife, doctor, and now physical therapist, decided to downsize garden even more. It's now gonna be half the size it's been. May have to start thinking about raised beds or containers. Don't know if that would be more trouble than it's worth. Then again, maybe it's time to stop gardening. Anyway, here's couple pictures taking down the fence.

I was a little aggravated when I decided to downsize garden again. Folks telling me I didn't need to be doing this or that. Well, I may be making another hasty decision, and more work, but I'm gonna put the fence back up. Got til spring time to do it.
