Hi,
I am in zone 7. Apart from peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, how late in season can I plant other (not Fall) crops from seed (for example: squashes, melon, beans, cucumbers, etc.)?
Thanks

Welcome Blaner. Click on the top gray toolbar 'Tools & Apps' then 'Vegetable Planting Dates.' It will prompt you for your zip code, then both a spring and fall planting calendar will pop up. I would check to see where your information is coming from - sometimes you have to adjust for micro-climates. My zip gets their info from a farming river valley about 10 miles north of me, but much more protected from salt water influence than me, and is off by a good 2 weeks. I assume that is the closest weather station or something. I just know to add 2 weeks to their suggested planting times.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
