I live near the Black Hills. Actually about ten miles outside. Out on the prairie. On the side of a hill. My weather is more prairie like than in the Hills. The Black Hills are technically part of the Rocky Mountains. 

We should actually divide up south dakota regions. East or west of the Missouri river. Two different climates. East river gets 3 to 5 times the precipitation that west river gets. 

I'm just starting with the SFG. Haven't put anything together yet. I can get everything I need. Already ordered a big seed assortment. 
Am doing this out of health reasons. Also saving money on decent food. It costs. Even at the farmers market. Yet, it's much better food. Getting away from all the GMO, pesticides, and toxins. 
Wondering about suggestions on what I could plant this month? I expect I'll need to greenhouse my SFG to finish the vegetables? Easy enough to do. 
We easily get a hard freeze in October here. Maybe a storm. Then it warms back up. Then... well.... it's always changing.

Hello and Welcome, Browndog!

The regions are kind of big and ours is the biggest and hugely variable. We have cold, arid and altitude in mostly common. Any rate we do seem to think about extending seasons and watering set ups a lot. I am in Montana, near Bozeman, other members are in Colorado and Central Oregon and points between.

What to plant now when your beds are not made yet. Greens like pak choy, lettuce. chard, that you can pick at any stage, also maybe radishes and carrots. You might see if there are any nursery grown broccoli, some people have luck with fall broccoli.

I could put the bed together on one day. Might do it today? I'll see...

Appreciate the advise. 

I do have experience with lets say, gardening. Mostly lawns and cosmetic. We did have a small vegetable garden one year when I was a kid. I did much of this when I was a kid. Grown up? This is the first actual house I've owned in my adult life. 

Is good getting into this. I always wanted to plant a few stalks of corn in the front yard. I always thought it would look; Korny. Wink
