Hi, Texas Gardeners!

I have four raised veggie beds that I'll be tilling up this coming weekend. Don't have any seedlings going, so I have to direct sow everything.

I have seeds for Purple Hull & Texas 8 Cream peas, Cukes, Okra, and Kentucky Wonder pole beans.

If I sow these seeds on May 3rd, will the harvest be close to maturity by August 16th? That would be 15 weeks. I'll need this crop to come to an end by then, so I could transplant the first half of a brassica crop in by August 30th.

Thanks in advance for any advice on how to use up these next 12-16 weeks! I tip my hat to you.

Hugs!

Apparently no one has any ideas, so I will just suggest that you read the seed packets (if any) to see what they promise.

Linda, I think Dave had a planting chart for the different zones. I'll try to find it. Maybe someone will remember the chart.

Linda, it's in the "Goodies" on the left of the screen. It's the Garden Planting Calendar. Follow instructions. Enter your location and it will tell you what you want to know, I hope!

Try some cucumbers. But I don't know if Squash Vine Borer attack or not the cucumber or attack by other pests Confused
Will be good to have some shadow, a lot of water (watering everyday), rich soil (manure) and led up on a support.
If start to produce, harvest every time when are good to eat. If you let the fruit on plant it will stop to produce new fruits.
Seed directly in soil.
