growing season failure

Zone 8 | pattyapi added on September 15, 2012 | Answered

We raised our garden this spring with ditch dirt that was donated by our road dept. The dirt smelled soured so we added lime and tilled it in. After planting, things did fine and then began to die back. With the exception of the tomatoes and okra, all else wilted and died. 90 degrees and raining for 8 weeks didn't help. Is it too late to replant a fall garden? We also were flooded with over 4 ft of sea water from Hurricane Isaac. I need to grow something but can't bear another loss. Not sure where to start.
