4 Veggies to Plant in June

It's hard to believe that June is here and Summer is just around the corner. Just because it's starting to warm up doesn't mean it's too late to add to your garden. Most fruiting plants like tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants should already be in the ground. However, lots of vegetables will grow and produce even more quickly from seed planted in early summer when the soil is well warmed up and ready to go!

Here are 4 veggies you should plant in June to take advantage of warmer temps!

1. Cabbage

Cabbage is definitely one of the easier vegetables to grow in your garden. 
Just be sure to fertilize and water when the cabbage head starts to form.

Both green peas and sugar snap peas are great summer crops. 
Plant them in mid-late June for some crisp, fresh peas.

3. Corn

One of the most rewarding and fast growing crops to grow. 
Corn is delicious when cooked only minutes after being pulled off the stalk. 
Try a small plot of corn, working your way to a large field of several varieties 
(provided you have the space, of course)

Suggested Variety: Peaches and CreamIncredibleSugar Buns

4. Cucumbers

Fast growing vine or bush cucumber plants can produce an abundance of cucumber fruits. 
Be careful to pick a variety for the space you have in your garden. 
Vine cucumbers can be the best tasting but need far more space than bush varieties.
