I had problems with half runner green beans this year never will I plant those again. I also planted okra 3 times it came up but died as soon as it hit the surface.

Cukes, okra, and beans are just starting to flower. Corn is up good. Should get some decent yeolds off them before the frost gets us down here. First winter veggies go down in late September

Wow Hook, I wouldn't have thought you had to worry much about frost there.
Is it that cold for an extended period of time or just a few hit & miss nights?

We get down to low 20's several times a year but it bounces right back up. Same with frosts, multiple times each winter but short lived
