You most likely chose a variety with a long days-to-harvest interval. These work well up north but down south tend to not start blooming until it is too late to set fruit due to the hot summer weather. Contact your local County Extension Office for a free list of recommended varieties for your area. If you plant in July you can get a crop for fall prior to the first frost.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
