Obviously outdooors can be an attractive alternative to the expensive art of indoor growing during hot summer months. The increased costs of electricity due to higher rates in the summer and a high demand cause many growers to take a break or go outdoors in the summer. For those of you that opt to grow outdoors in the summer I'd like to begin a poll to find out when (what month) people begin their outdoor grows. Please include the country, state, city or area and climate that you're growing in. If you live in a climate that supports year around growing please say so in a quick post.
