Keep Planting!

We're all in the same boat, no doubt named Noah.  As soils dry out be ready to plant more edibles to enjoy this summer.  Check the chart below for the planting or direct seeding window for veggies and some herbs.  The chart is divided between cool and warm season crops.  Most cool crops can be planted starting in mid-July for a fall crop (or sooner if this cool weather stays around).  Garlic can be planted in September or October, shallots too if you are in zone 5 or warmer.
