What to Plant in June
We skipped “what to plant in May” in order to answer a frequent customer question. Besides, May plantings are everyone’s veggie garden favorites: tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, basil, and sunflowers. But what can you plant in the sweltering heat of June? Well, more of what you planted for May, for starters! For more ideas, try some of these below:
Beans: edamame are bush beans that do not require trellising. They also tend to produce their beans all at once; for an extended harvest period, sow seeds once a week for the entire month of June.
Squash: these trombone squash can be used the same as zucchini, but unlike zucchini, they resist squash vine borer. Grow on a trellis to save space.
Cucumbers: also called "cucamelons" or "sanditas," this variety resembles tiny watermelons. Great in salads or as garnishes for garden party cocktails.
Melons: love this mix of three flavors in one seed packet. The seeds are color-coded with food-safe dye so that you can tell which is which.
Okra loves hot weather. Try grilling it whole for a tasty treat.
