I was hoping to plant some pumpkins, but I am worried they won't grow very well since it is almost the middle of July. Can I still plant some in my garden? I live in a very warm climate too.

I think you should still get decent pumpkins in zone 8. Because it's so hot right now they should grow quickly, much more quickly than if you'd planted earlier. Make sure they have plenty of water, though, and mulch them so they don't fry. Good luck!
