I am glad you are getting something I felt bad for your first attempt. Will you plant a winter garden?

Nothing yet here. Cows and calves are still keeping the grass mowed down in the garden and providing some fresh manure. I'll be turning the dirt over this weekend of next though. Still to hot for Winter planting, but I'll start my seeds this weekend. Planning to add another layer on my raised beds for Winter planting too.

Nice hope it works out well for you. I cant turn cattle in my garden they would eat up my sweet potatoe vines they love them as do deer.

Yeah it doesn't stay cool long enough. I've talked to people who say they were successful.
Going to try to get them in a little earlier this year and use shade cloth until the heat breaks
