Vegetable to Plant Now - Early June


For people who want to plant, this month is ideal to sow directly outdoors for the following common varieties which are more heat tolerant:

  • Sweet corn

  • Broccoli

  • Cabbage

  • Kale

  • Collards

  • Radishes

  • Snap pole beans

  • Snap bush beans

  • Runner beans

  • Beets

  • Spinach

  • Swiss chard

  • Potatoes

  • Carrots

  • Cilantro

  • Chives

  • Garlic

  • Leeks

  • Scallions, and

  • Lettuce.

Keep in mind that heat tolerant doesn’t equate to direct sun. A good rule of thumb when selecting plants that can do well in partial shade includes considering if you are eating the root of the plant, or the leaves of the plant. This is seen in plants such as in potatoes and beets (root), or lettuce and spinach (leaves).
