Q.Short growing season help

Zone 97624 | Anonymous added on August 30, 2020 | Answered

We have an extremely short growing season where I am. We usually have frost well into May and June and it starts backup in September. I do not have a greenhouse. When it comes to this time of year is there any way to help speed up the growth process of the fruit that is on my plants? Should I remove small undeveloped vegetables that are never going to have a chance? Will that help with making the more mature vegetables ripen in time? I have been removing blossoms.

Yes, removing the smaller fruits will send more energy to the larger fruits.
