Hi, I have a property on the hill near the middle school in Pacific Grove. I would like to plant some fruit trees, and wanted to inquire about which fruits do best there. I'm actually live in the East Bay so I'm unfamiliar to that micro climate.

Does this seriously mean I can plant summer squash by seed in August? It seems counter-intuitive.

Hi Lucy,  
According to the Burpee website,, most summer squash varieties are ready to harvest in 50 days. Where I am in Prunedale I would have the warm temperatures squash needs to plant in August and harvest in late September. Your microclimate might be similar or could be different.
