What's it too late to plant

Hi all,

First time poster. Thanks for listening. We haven't had a garden for several years while we have been chasing our kids around to different sporting events, but we are down to 1 (kid) and tried to put one in this year. The main thing we wanted to grow was cucumbers to make pickles with, but since we were at it, we also planted okra, squash, watermelons and cantaloupe. We planted in mid April and the day after the (torrential) rains came. I think most everything go silted in. only a few cucs came up, almost no okra, no watermelons and a few cantaloupe. I got busy w/ work and it has rained almost every weekend since, so I haven't had time to replant until last weekend we I replanted the cucumbers, which are now up. What I need to know is if it is too late to replant the Okra, squash, melons, or cantaloupes. I am guessing the Okra should be okay, but not really sure about the rest. Am I just wasting my time? Will it burn up?

Thanks for the insight,

You've got PLENTY of time in Georgia to plant. Go for it.

RE: What's it too late to plant

I'm in the same boat as you.....planted stuff and watched it wash away in the monsoons of late. Someone downhill from me is gonna have a very pretty Rebel lawn!

At any rate, it's probably too late, but I planted the snow pea pods I forgot to put in the veggie bed. Can't hurt to try, right?

The only things I think we're late on are the cool season stuff - at least until fall. Broccoli, brussels, lettuce, peas, etc.
