There is still time to rotate in summer vegetables that can be consumed in August and September.  Our source is as always the “Reliable Seeds 1994” pamphlet by Charles Ledgerwood.

Recommendations for the month of June are:

BEANS, beets, carrots, CANTALOUPE, CORN , CUCUMBER, LIMAS, OKRA, parsley, PEPPERS, PUMPKINS, radishes, N.Z. SPINACH, SQUASH, Swiss chard, tomato, jicama, watermelon, egg plant and sunflower.

Don’t forget to move your plantings around in your garden, change the rows you plant your tomatoes in, even spread vegetables around in your regular landscape. Egg plants are beautiful in bloom and fruiting as is chard.

For the flowers we have:

Asters, Balsam, Candytuft, Carnation, Celosia, Centaurea, Cobaea, Convolvulus, Calliopsis, Cosmos, Cynogiosum, Dianthus, Daisies, Dismorphotheca, Dusty, Miller, Fountain grasses, Gloriosa Daisies, Gourds, Gypsophilia, Helichrysum, Ipomea, Larkspur, Lavendaer, Lunaria, Marigold, Nasturtium, Phlox, Portulaca, Rudbeckia, Salpiglossis, Scabiosa, Salvia, Statice, Tithonia, Sunflowers and Zinnias.
