June Homestead To Do List

Still more to plant this month!  Here is my list for this month: Veggies: These veggies can be sown earlier than June, but can be sown again in June for a longer staggered harvest: Root veggies: carrots, beets, parsnips and radishes Greens: lettuces, spinach, mustard, kale, collards, swiss chard These veggies are typically planted in May, or after night time temps are above 50 degrees and also known as warm season crops. If you have already planted them, they can be sown again this month for a staggered harvest, if you have not planted any yet, get some in as quick as you can: Legumes: pole beans, bush beans and dry beans Corn Cucurbits: cucumbers, melons, summer squash, winter squash, pumpkins Herbs: All of them such as basil, thyme, dill, cilantro, sage, oregano, parsley, lavender, mint, lemon balm, etc. Vegetables for Winter Harvest: Sow these this month indoors and plan to transplant them into the garden in August Brassicas (Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Kale) Onions and Leeks for overwintering Flowers: Sunflowers Zinnias Snapdragon Nasturtium Marigold Cosmos Petunias Coleus Fuchsia Lobelia Alyssum All.
