When is the best time to plant tomatoes for the Fall in southeast Louisiana? Looking on LSU Agric website they suggested a date range of 7/1 - 8/15 for tomato plants. This seems early due to the hot summer temperatures. Should I wait maybe until September?
I'm also looking at planting snap beans(...

I would change it myself. All you need is a drill, a caulk gun, and a utility knife to get one old window out. It'll take m...
