I started my first vegetable garden this year. I was under serious time crunch to get it done before leaving the country and wanting to keep it simple enough for husband to tend. i was also unsure about the area as there were some sun issues. We are in zone 8b but in a hilly area, so while it gets very hot, it can cool down too. my point is all it looks like we will get this year is lettuce, mint, squash and tomatoes. I am very happy with that, but my cucumbers disappeared, my peppers never materialized and I'm doubtful on the strawberries. Any crops i can still plant or should I just wait for next year? Thank for yor help as I really have no clue what O am doing!
