Post #6772432

We haven't washed out ourselves but the garden is at a standstill. We had 22 days of rain in June and so far rain everyday in JUly. Aguy in Massachusetts told me he got 2 inches of rain in 12 minutes yesterday. His Market Garden is on a hill and he doesn't know if anything is left. We are thinking of working on a big time fall/winter garden to make up the difference. I need ideas. Keep in mind our first hard frost comes in late September. I am thinking I might force some tulips and daffodils for the December Market. There will be snow by then and the market is outside so that might not work. I do not have a green house just 5- 8ft x8ft cold frames. Please, a lot of ideas needed:)
