What to Plant in July


Home > Gardener's Guide > What to Plant in July

There are still some great crops that can be planted that will keep your garden pumping out vegetables well into the fall.

Beans:
Start planting both bush and pole beans now that the soil and air are warmed up. Try a continual 7-10 day sowing of different varieties. This will give you continual bean crops and not one large harvest with wasted crop.
Suggested variety: Contender, Kentucky Wonder, Topcrop

Broccoli
Broccoli can be planted in the fall to produce a crop well into November.
Suggested variety: Calabrese

Carrots
Planting carrots by mid-July yields a fall crop that will keep in the garden until used.
Suggested variety: Scarlet Nantes

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. Last practical date to plant any corn variety is the first week in July. Must plant an early maturing corn variety.
Suggested variety: Bodacious, Sugar Buns, Early Golden Bantam

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.
Suggest variety: Spacemaster 80, Muncher, Marketmore 76

Kale
Planting kale mid-July through mid-August will yield an excellent harvest in the fall and winter.
Suggested variety: Dwarf Blue
