Misti, I have sown dwarf butternut squash as late as the middle of July here and harvested squash before frost, so I think any bean with a maturity date plus 2 weeks that fits between now and your first Autumn frost would work, too - provided you can adequately water them.

In zone 7, there are many annual flowers, herbs and vegies that can still be sown (I don't have a list right now). On May 20, in milk jugs with just the handle left above the midline, I "summer-sowed" about 50 annual flowers, 30 of which have germinated. The results will be interesting, to say the least, but having missed earlier chances to sow anything and with a possible surgery coming up later this summer, I'm just glad I had this chance to sow something.

So, if anyone else got snafoo-ed in the seed sowing department, you can still do it at least in my zone or warmer. Andi, how has your late sowing been going?
