Hi guys, I’m in zone 9a/9b in Ramona, California. I’m on a hillside at 1400 ft. I’m growing in a 600sqft greenhouse, raised planter beds, and in ground. My ground matter consists of red clay, sandy loom, and granite.

It looks like you are enjoying yourself! What variety in those cages handles your heat?

Welcome from Wisconsin! But worked & gardened on Miramar in the 80's-90's when it was NAS Miramar, and had friends who lived in Poway & Ramona. I miss those years, I had all the manure I wanted from the stables & was able to garden year-round.

It looks like gardening is challenging for you, you really are up in the rocks. ;) The nice climate compensates for that though. The perfect environment for growing chayote squash, if you like them; my vines were 3 years old when I left California. You could grow Chilacayote too, another perennial squash. Both are rampant climbing vines, which need strong support (and will cover a small tree if allowed to do so).
