Hey, since you've got an incredibly green thumb; I'm trying to grow out some vegetables. Would you recommend anything for 60 degree weather? I'm plotting out tomatoes, maybe some squash, and snap peas, but I'm not sure if the beans can handle 40 degree nights.

Wow, I had a feeling you were the right person to ask. Thanks for all this info, it'll give me something to figure out!

That's great to hear, I wanted to start early on beans so I can try making dilly beans without worrying about using old stock more prone to withering, and I have a whole bunch of sprouted stalks that I am thinking about planting soon, so this is awesome news.

I'll definitely keep the tomatoes in mind, and your link reminded me that I found a bunch of orphaned green onion crops that I might transplant to my plot (they're part of an old section of community garden that's going to get mulched in the next couple of days).

One last question while I have your attention: any chance I can grow smaller garlic cloves without them coming out tiny in turn? I tend to get annoyed peeling the really tiny cloves so would rather find some other use for them that isn't as time-intensive and planting them would at least give them something to do, so I was wondering...

Shame about the garlic. Maybe I'll just save the tiny bits for soups or something instead. Thanks again!
