Summer Seed Planting = Fall / Late Fall Harvesting

By now most everyone should be harvesting their squash, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, beans, etc. but summers end doesn't mean the end of veggie bounties.

Depending on where you live, there are many veggies seeds you can plant now in the next couple of weeks of August, that will grow and provide a nice little harvest bounty come fall.

If you live like where we do in Michigan, tomatoes and peppers are pretty much out as for summer planting. You can though stick some bush bean seeds (Kentucky Wonder) in the ground and
get a fair size bean bounty. You just have to make sure you plant them where they can get as much sun as possible.

Other veggies seeds that can be planted are - Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Brussel spouts, Kohlrabi, Spinach, Lettuce, Peas, Kale, etc...

Root veggies like beets, carrots, radishes and the like can be planted now too, but don't wait to long unless you live in milder planting areas of the Earth...

Happy Planting...
