Too hot out to garden now.  I'm inside with the a/c.

Yellow jackets are destroying the majority of my figs.  Never had that happen before.  I' ve been stung multiple times.  I put out a few traps but there must be thousands of them out there.

Spud I've never seen a cow and dog do that before.  They definitely like each other.  I'll see if I can upload a little video from my cellphone.

Rufus and the cow.  What an interesting meeting.  Makes me wonder why they got along so well.

Daniel, that scene of Rufus and the cow is delightful! What great pals; do you suppose the cow would go with you on your walk? Then your majestic ducks making their quacking way right in line; I don't know about the chickens, but if you put some grain in a pail and rattle it every now and then, the whole flock will get right in line. This kind of reminds me of "The Bremen's Town Musicians."

Hahahaha.......she's so cute. I guess they'll just have to visit.

wish I could!  she seems lonely.  very nice personality and tolerated Rufus's puppy antics!  But chickens, ducks, and puppy are all I can handle!

I guess you'll have to adopt her for your dog!

they spent about 15 minutes kissing each other.  When we left, the poor coe mooed for a long time.

That's so cute!

Joan,  you have garden challenges, but you really do live in an incredibly beautiful area.  That photo is just beautiful! 

I imagine the Canadian seeds would be more cold tolerant than those further south.

My friend's neighbor has goats and cows in their yard.  Not exactly a garden, but that's what they do.  My little friend Rufus enjoyed meeting the cow.

Loam, I chose early, "short season" varieties, but we have some savage late and early frosts. We live on the north side of Mt Spokane in a system of ridges and valleys. I have seen two commercial greenhouses go out of business near Newport since I started coming here. The elevation of Newport is 2,142′ and we live up a valley of a watershed that flows into Priest River out of Priest Lake. It is an incredibly beautiful place. 

I choose Canadian seed companies for some of my seeds and get good results with zucchini and cucumbers. 

I will try your suggestions next year, using the greenhouse to start them and transplant them into the boxes when the soil heats up to 50°F.
