Riverland Farm

Now that it is officially summer, we move into the warm season which brings on pests, weeds, and for some of us, triple digit temps making garden work  most unpleasant.
If you can manage to power through however, here in our zone 6b(ish) garden there are a few crops that can be planted later on in the season rewarding you with a late summer/early fall harvest.
Pole beans, pumpkins and winter squash can be planted in mid July.  You can also continue to plant your summer squash as well.
If the pests got a hold of your tomatoes and peppers, you can replant these  in mid-July.  Note that you will need to either start your own transplants or be able to get a hold of some you can purchase.
Broccoli, brussels sprouts, and carrots can be planted from mid July to mid August. Carrots should be directly seeded, but as with the tomatoes and peppers you’ll need to set out broccoli and ‘sprouts transplants.
Speaking of transplants here is some info on what you would need to get them started andhere is some info on hardening them off.
If you want cut flowers for the table consider starting some zinnias and sunflowers!  Both of these are easy to grow and can be sown directly in the garden.
And for your late summer salsa…cilantro can be sown again from mid July to mid August.
