I have an empty square from harvesting onions and will have 2 more soon when I pull my beets. What this late in the year can I put in the empty squares. It is already very hot here (90's), so I don't know what would do ok this time of the year.

I'm in zone 7 also, but I have had one day so far this year that hit 70°.

I know that eastern Va, northeast NM, and western WA all have zone 7s. Yet all three have very different summer weather.

Nobody can offer a reasonable answer to your question without a better idea of what your summer climate is. If you would like valuable feedback, it would be helpful if you put some indication in your profile location or your post, as to where your geographical location is.

LOL I dunno; I can only dream about gardening in that kind of weather!

I would think you could direct seed nearly any warm season crop that you wanted to. Beans, corn, squash, eggplant, peppers, cukes, etc. Most veggie growth will slow down when temps get above 90° for more than a few days.

Member Dixie is in SE TN, and this year and last, she has been harvesting months ahead of me. You guys must be in a garden paradise!

Summer stuff should do well. Beans, etc. I would toss a couple of squares of pole beans in strategic spots and put some lettuces/carrots in the shade cast from the beans as they climb the pole. It's worth a shot imo. Swiss chard also comes to mind, as well as a host of annual blooming flowers like marigolds or geraniums. You may find the latter on sale at the big box stores as they try and clear stuff off shelves.

Well guys, I've got all that stuff. You wouldn't believe the Swiss Chard and Beets. Huge. My dwarf sunflowers obviously don't know they are supposed to be small. They are gorgeous. Same with my Marigolds, Sage, Parsley, Basil, and Peppers. The only thing that doesn't seem to be thriving is my tomatoes. But the ones in my husbands row garden are looking great, so no worries there. I guess I could throw in an eggplant or some more radishes. It is so hot and dry, I worry it will be hard little baby plants trying to get started.
