All the seed packages said to plant right after the last chance of frost. I'm in Arizona. We almost never get frost here. The problem for that time of year is that there's no water. Because I'm in Arizona, I waited until the monsoon started in an attempt to reduce the irrigation needs.
|It basically didn't work.|
Waiting, I thought, left too little time for the crops to mature. The corn never developed and there were no gourds. As it turns out the pole beans did come in so I'll have fresh beans through the holidays and seed for next year.
|Most of them are already dried, too. Saves me that step.|
