I feel so sorry for you folks in cold climate areas.

Page 1 of 2  
Here it is March 28, (2006) and my carrots are popping through- an inch high; my watermelon; squash; okra and snow peas are 1 to 2" high; my potatoes are about half- way grown; cauliflowers have little marble sized caulitflower on them'; cabbage is about ready to firm up to make cabbageheads; new grape plan is blossoming, and I'm already eating delicious Bibb lettuce, As soon as they're arrive from Henry Field's, I'll be planting strawberries, sweet potatoes, and onions.
Even in winter I had planted a terrific garden. BUT,,,,summers just too hot for some veggies,...lettuce, and cole crops, while tomatoes have to be shaded. Question: Where do I live? And be gentle with your answers,(tee hee)

truth be told, I ate radicchio, kale, collard and bok choi through the winter. I just finished everything (the last bucket was harvested one week ago) and now I am eating (grazing) smaller, come-again green leaves from heads harvested in november. Michigan under a tunnel is not so bad, the garlic under the tunnels is one foot high whereas the one outside is just pushing out. The only problem is when it stays well below freezing through the weekend, and I can not harvest veggies unless they are unfrozen. This year it never happened though.
so don't be so smug. We have relatively few pests compared to the South, and the summers are pleasant.

iguana and nematodes, THEN you live in the south. Our dill just bolted into a fireworks display of flowering. Gardening this far south is no picnic. Bugs come here to vacation.

Hmf I'll see your iguana with a 4ft goanna and raise you with a red-bellied black snake.

what survives there in the summer, Mike? I assume okra, watermelon, and sweet potato will do well, but the rest? and what is the water bill? How much mulch do you need, and what do you use in the desert to mulch?

Me too. Where we have very few insects, no raccoons, have an occasional Javalina, can garden every month of the year. Not to mention, virtually no rainfall and a scarce water supply.

Hi! A few unkind people in this world. But you came closest with the iguana bit...I live in Souther Arizona!

thanks mike for feeling sorry for us all but really u dont have t because a lot of people have gardens in the winter even in the col areas. some ppl put straw over their carrots and other things so tha they can harvest them later on during the year. its nice to hear that u have a really nice garden and u tend to enjo it a lot :). i know ppl think u are bragging but your main question was "where do live?" not hey im an ass bragging about my garden u had to tell u those things so that we would guess where u lived. i have an adopted sister living in arizona she loves it there. thanks for telling us about your garden and where u live. im from southern ontario around the stratford area. we had a fairl open winter this year and dont have any snow as of right now. enjoy your garden. cyaaaaaa, sockiescat:)

Hah! Those red bellied black snakes are great! If you have them then you don't have Eastern Brown Snakes or Tiger Snakes. And I'll bet that you and I are both much further South than the other posters who seem to think "South" is somwhere in the Northern Hemisphere :-))

We were told the old furphy about black snakes keeping away the browns but it just ain't so. We have browns as well but there are more blacks, I don't really mind the blacks as they leave you alone if you leave them alone but browns are really scary. Both are endemic to the district. We are about 32 degrees Sth.

I don't know how far south I am.
At our other palce we have red bellied blacks and no other snakes at all. The value of the red bellied blacks is that their venom kills brown snakes whereas the reverse is not true.

Is this the correct answer? Cuz here in the San Joaquin Valley, CA, all our cool season crops are done. This years weather has screwed up planting but we're normally in the high 70s, low 80s by now. Broccoli, cauliflower, chard, etc bolted weeks ago. I'm in the southern portion of the central valley. We grow most of the food for the nation here.
