Make second planting of short season vegetables

You are probably picking short season vegetables such as radish, lettuce and spinach right now. Now is the time to make a second planting for harvest later this summer.

I like to make a second planting of bush green beans about a month to 6 weeks after the first planting.

This is also an ideal time to plant root crops such as carrot, parsnip, turnip and rutabaga that benefit from cool weather to improve their flavor.

We have a growing season which extends well into October. There is still time to mature almost any vegetable including tomatoes, corn, melons and winter squash.
