What to plant

    I still have some space in the garden and I’m not sure what else to plant. There is 103 days until 1st frost date. We are not getting much rain and I don’t have water near the garden. We have had 0.5 inches of rain in the past 2 months and weather reports say hot and dry the next two weeks. I’m not sure what can grow with so little rain.

    Are you able to start items inside to transfer? Or have them grow in containers?

    We are praying for rain and hoping our garden doesn’t burn up.

    Keep trying new ideas

    I would start some cucumbers or squash in seed starting trays close to your house then transplant into the garden when the rain gets a little more frequent. Should be able to get a harvest before frost.

    LOL I have the opposite probably. I always run out of room and have to get creative where I put things. Also, we’ve just had rain here for like 3 weeks! Corn is heat loving and drought tolerant. I think you should still have time to plant dent corn. Swiss chard also likes the heat and it can probably get away with a missed watering or two. Although you’ll have to research some because I’m in zone 5 – different from you.

    Not sure of your zone, here in Florida, I’m planting okra, sweet potatoes and sunn hemp. They all like it hot.

      I’m in Florida too. I also plant peanuts.

        The squirrels plant the peanuts for me – I have them coming up everywhere LOL.

    I would plant some mellons. They will need a little water for first month once or twice a week but after a month they should have deep enough root’s.
