Too late?

Our vegetable garden has about had it. We have had a bumper crop of cukes, squash, peas, beans, okra, etc...

I am finding out that even though I was tired of picking so many squash and cucumbers every other day, I still want more! Is it too late just to plant a couple more hills of squash and a couple cucumbers, and even maybe some more okra and expect to see some more on my plate before the season ends?

I think you need between 90 and 120 days. When do you expect io start getting frost in your area?

Hey, I am still planting...
I am an eternal optimist..
*and you've got a longer growing season than I do..*
But the question is......
Are you starting these from seeds
or plants already started from seeds,
just not planted yet?????

I am still planting. I figure if I lose them with frost then it is just a few seeds lost. Still hoping though!

We are all under the same stars... therefore we are never far apart.

I'm drinking the juice out of my "mini green houses" as quickly as I can. I really want some of the lettuce to grow until it can be harvested this year. Now that's optimism lol.

60-70 days for Cukes and Zukes. I just planted seeds for my last crops of these guys yesterday and should have no problem getting a bunch before frost. Plus I am well north of ya in Pennsylvania.

What have we got to lose? We will plant a couple of each (seeds) on Monday.

Thanks, Everyone!
