Summer season and gardening seem to go hand-in-hand. When the sun is shining and the skies are clear, there’s nothing better than putting some use to that green thumb. For seasoned growers, summer marks another opportunity to harvest plants that will thrive in the summer. For new gardeners or those who simply garden for fun and enjoyment, summer marks a great time to experiment with new crops and see what they can grow. June is an incredibly underrated time to plant. Many growers will say that those who plant in June have missed the boat, but this is simply not true.

Planting in June still leaves an opportunity to grow some healthy, flourishing vegetables, fruits, and all types of plants. Now don’t get us wrong, things like peppers, eggplants, and tomatoes need to have been set already. Nevertheless, there are certainly some plants that will do well if planted this coming month. Let’s take a look at the best plants to harvest in June:

  • Beans
  • Scallions
  • Cucumbers
  • Basil
  • Melons
  • Oregano
  • Edamame
  • Carrots
  • Sage
  • Squashes (both summer and winter)
  • Beets
  • Pumpkins
  • Chard
  • Corn

Timing is one of the most important parts of gardening. However, the growth process continues to change as climate continues to change with it. Take a chance with some of the above vegetables this June and see as your garden grows bountifully.
