Believe it or not, it is time to plant certain kinds of vegetables right now.
Yes, I realize that it is August and it is hot and the last thing you probably want to do is have to plant seeds out in your vegetable garden.
But, just keep telling yourself that by working a little bit now, you will reap the rewards of fresh vegetables in just a few months when the temperatures are cooler.
So what seeds can you plant now? Here are some of my favorites….
Yes, we can grow two crops of corn here in the desert – once in spring and in the fall. Aren’t we lucky?
Mine are still going strong from the spring. Mostly due to the shade cloth. I am still getting cucumbers. It is amazing what a difference shade cloth makes 🙂
Fresh vegetables, Leaf Lettuce…
I think this is my favorite vegetable. I love going out in the garden with scissors and clipping our dinner salad.
There are also other vegetables that you can plant now from seed and they include:
Basil (okay, this is a herb, but I do grow it in my vegetable garden)
Green Snap Beans
It’s important to remember to start these from seed when planting this time of year. However, if you prefer using transplants, you will need to wait until fall to plant.
So, do you have any plans for planting vegetables soon?
I would love to hear what you will be growing 🙂
