For some of us, the summer heat has already felt like an eternity. I can tell many of the plants in my garden have felt the heat too. With an unseasonably hot and dry summer, many of my vegetables have yielded a very small crop. It isn’t too late to actually reap the benefits of a summer garden though! For many of us that use succession planting, it is time to start thinking of planting many cooler weather crops.
If you haven’t planted a garden this year, it is not too late to reap the benefits of gardening. There are many vegetable varieties that if planted in early August can still be harvested in the fall. Here is a list of 60-Day harvest crops that are a good idea to sow in early August:
To be honest, last year we were away for a trip for four days and when we returned, many of my plants just didn’t recover. So I started over. It was late July and one of the crops I replanted were Green Beans. I reaped a much larger harvest in the fall than I had much earlier in the year, the conditions were so much better.
