Today we want to share with you a special post:

Plants You Can Plant In July

In many parts of the world, the summer weather can be quite difficult. If you have more than 10 days with temperatures over 100F, phew! This is certainly not the best climate for planting! But if you live in USDA zones 4, 5, 6, and 7, there are still some vegetables you can plant this time of year.

The first thing to do is take a look at your garden and see if there are any empty plots to plant. A place where some plants have not survived in the last year or where you have already removed some vegetables could be perfect for your new crops this year! You can still enjoy all the heat that blows in July by filling these places with new plantings!

For example, we always have a large wasteland where our peas have been planted. The peas are ready here on July 1 and ready to go. Much of this space will remain empty for 30 days pending the first planting of carrots and spinach in August. Also, the lettuce beds are empty, so the bush beans can be planted there right away.

So what plants can you plant in July and still hope to have a harvest?


Did you know that a second cucumber plantation in July will produce a small harvest in early fall? Yes, it is never a bad idea to plant more cucumbers for the storage season.

And doesn't it seem like cucumber plants "always burn out"? My plants always seem to start to wilt in late August. So this year I will try to plant cucumbers in early July. These fresh green plants will start producing in early September and will help build my fall harvest! Then you can also grow them on a trellis for an even better harvest.

Onions and leeks

If you can still find them at your local nursery, you can still get onion sets at your planting site. Since it will NOT burn, you will only get chives.

You can plant them 7cm deep and close enough to save space. They can last until fall and enrich your meals with fresh chives! So mid-summer is a great time to start planting onions and leeks in the fall.

If you live in a temperate winter area, you can get a harvest by planting the seeds directly in the garden. In turn, in areas where winter starts early, you may need to plant a few seedlings or try planting some indoors and then transplanting them in 6 weeks.

Summer squash

If you plant zucchini, crooked neck, or zucchini from early to mid-July, they should still produce some fruit at the end of the season. Certainly, the yield you should expect will be less than it would be if the plants appeared during the month of May. But don't worry, you can still enjoy a good harvest in mid-September until frost freezes your plants in the cold month of October.

In fact, if you're battling powdery mildew in your garden, planting any of these zucchini in July may be just what your basket of plantings 'dreams of'. When your spring-planted pumpkins start to give way to powdery mildew, your new July plants will start. Woolly aphids (Eriosomatinae) and other sucking insects are often transmission vectors of powdery mildew and other infectious diseases.

Woolly aphids in sub-temperate climates generally precede and are an indicator of various infections, including powdery mildew. Aphids penetrate the surface of plants where they frequently reside and provide a myriad of potential inoculants through physical, digestive, or fecal secretions. Aphids are often an indicator of other potential plant problems.


Powdery mildew is a fungal disease that affects a wide range of plants. Powdery mildew diseases are caused by many different species of fungi in the order Erysiphales, with Podosphaera xanthii (also known as Sphaerotheca fuliginea) being the most commonly reported cause. Powdery mildew fungi reproduce sexually and asexually. Milk is very popular with home gardeners and small organic farmers as a powdery mildew treatment.

How to beat powdery mildew:

The milk is diluted with water (usually 1:10) and sprayed on plants sensitive to the first sign of infection, or as a preventive measure, with repeated weekly applications that usually control or eliminate the disease. Studies have shown the effectiveness of milk comparable to some conventional fungicides. The exact mechanism of action is unknown, but a known effect is that ferroglobulin, a whey protein, produces oxygen radicals when exposed to sunlight, and contact with these radicals is harmful to the fungus.


Cabbage, when planted in hot July, from sprouts or seeds, will produce a great harvest [and even in winter]. You'll have to wait to harvest this cabbage plantation until fall is really stabilized and you've had 2-3 chilly nights. The glaze also helps to sweeten the cabbage and enhance its flavor. But if you want "kale", you have to plant it right away, without delay!

Summer crisp lettuces

Summer lettuce varieties will do well in July and August, and the seeds can be planted in the garden. Just be sure to keep the seeds moist until they sprout and settle. Most summer lettuce varieties resist screw and tip burning. I like doing this because it gives me a very early harvest of lettuce so I can eat fresh salads from the garden, topped with fresh, sweet tomatoes of course.

Fall peas

Don't forget to plant some peas, peas, or shelled peas as well. They should arrive in mid-July and will be ready in mid-October. I saw that the towers do particularly well in the fall.

So if you plant peas in mid-July, you can have a decent harvest in late fall. Remember that in areas where you have very hot summers and shortfalls, peas do not do as well in fall as they do in spring. Expect half the harvest in the fall, as you would get the same number of plants in the spring.

Green beans

You should be aware that green beans have a surprisingly short growing time. This is especially true for bushy varieties of green beans. Many varieties of wild beans have an expiration date of only 60 to 70 days. This means that sowing in early July will be ready no later than mid-September, and if you have a late first frost date, even sowing in late July will still give you a bountiful harvest.

Idea plus for summer goodies:

Speaking of the July planting, it's not too early to think about fall crops either. A broccoli planting in mid-July (especially when growing broccoli) will work well. You can also get an early "jump" in your fall crops, turnips, beets, or even baby carrots.

However, the important thing to remember about any plant in July is that the weather (think hot) is very turbulent in newly germinated seedlings. You will need to pay special attention to everything you planted in July and water frequently. In the first weeks of cultivation, it may be necessary to water daily.

So if you have empty flower beds in your garden, or if you had one of those springs and you haven't absorbed anything, don't be nervous - it's not too late to plant seeds in that land of yours!

At least now you know what you can plant in July and still have a harvest!
