Vegetable Gardeners: June is NOT Too Late!
Posted in: Lawn and Garden
Gardening is a year-round process. Even though weather and timing are important, don't be discouraged and miss out on crops of healthy, homegrown vegetables just because the end of May "deadline" has passed. As Rogue Valley gardeners for many decades, we emphasize that it is not too late to plant a great garden in June. While it is true that some popular fruiting plants like tomatoes, peppers and eggplants must be set out from started plants to produce by late summer, many summer crops will take off from planting in the warm soils of early summer. The following are great for June planting:

Transplants or Seed:

  • Cucumbers
  • Melons
  • Squashes, Pumpkins
  • Greens
  • Basil
  • Oregano
  • Chives
  • Sage
Transplants:

  • Tomatoes
  • Sweet Peppers
  • Hot Peppers
Plant Seeds:

  • Beans, bush
  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Chard
  • Scallions
In addition to the successful summer crops, late June is the ideal time to plant a fall vegetable garden from seed. With a little care spinach, broccoli, radishes, kale, lettuces, onions and many more can be planted to prepare for your fall harvest. Your local Grange Co-op has an excellent nursery.
