Simple Vegetables

The extended weekend presents the perfect opportunity to spend time outside giving your garden a little TLC. Take advantage of warmer temperatures, long days, and moist soil to do the bulk of your summer plantings.

Start with early-season crops like radishes, spinach, onions, leeks, lettuce, cabbage, beets, peas, Brussels sprouts, and carrots. If the soil temperature is consistently above 70ºF, you can also begin to plant heat-loving plants, like tomatoes, squash, melons, eggplant, peppers, sweet corn, cucumbers, potatoes, and herbs.
