We are officially zone 5 in Eastern WA but practically more a zone 4. Last frost can be as late as June 1st and about every 5 years we get a frost in July or August. We had rain here this year in July when most of the country was in a drought but we also had a very late summer and already had frost twice. The great thing was that the lettuce did not bolt until late July. I was able to plant an additional garden in a better location with some more sun and was able to grow a few nice water melons for the first time ever.
We had a bumper crop of tomatoes but had to harvest more than half green. Zucchini were abundant as well and we eat them as spaghetti now which is great for our low-carb diet. Eggplant and peppers didn't do so well.
I'm learning to live with the weather and plant mostly cold-hardy veggies, leafy greens,onions, garlic, a few beets and carrots. I also planted some additional trees, 2 prune plums, 2 western hazelnuts, a gooseberry shrub. I also grew some rhubarb from seed and next year should be able to supply our whole town with rhubarb plants, LOL.
You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
