Depending on which growing zone you live in, you may have already planted your gardens weeks ago. But what if you got a bit behind the 8-ball on getting that veggie garden growing? Fear not, my friends...there is still time to plant and create a bountiful harvest by Summer's end.
Lettuce can be planted in the spring for an early summer harvest, in late-summer for a fall harvest, and in a cold frame in the fall for a winter harvest.
So what happens if you can't get that garden up and running in time for harvest in August? Take these next few weeks to plan for a fall harvest and/or a cold frame garden for the winter. Around the beginning of August, you can plant spinach, radish, turnip, beet, bush bean, and mustard. In September, you can plant onion, lettuce, kohlrabi, cabbage, cauliflower, carrot, and broccoli. And remember, there's always garlic planting in the fall for next summer's harvest!
So relax and have fun gardening this season, knowing that you can still grow your own veggies and enjoy the fruits of your labor. :-)
