Vegetables and Herbs to Plant in July

Despite what many people think, July is definitely not too late to start planting vegetables. July is also a good month to put in a second (or third) sowing of certain crops, such as carrots. It is also the perfect time to start planning the fall vegetable garden — fall will be here before you know it!

Below are lists, by U.S. region, of which vegetables and herbs you can plant in July. Unless specifically listed as “transplants” the items in this list can be direct-sown in your garden this month.

  1. July is for hiding indoors and doing sweet bugger all here in Tassie. The jonquils are all coming out along with their friends the snowdrops. Masses of new baby agapanthus are tumbling out of their seeds filling up spaces on the driveway that need a bit of cover. The forget-me-nots are living up to their name and soon we will have to start whipper snipping (strimming) all over again to prevent those sticky seeds travelling far and wide and invading Poland. The blackberries are lying low like Brer Rabbit but are just waiting for any signs of spring to go mental all over again and the native animals are patrolling my potted plants hoping to find something that they haven’t already eaten to sustain them. We are feeding the wrens and the grey shrikes and the sparrows cheese on our windowsills as it’s a hard winter and it’s “Paper, rock, scissors” as to who goes out to get the wood to put on the everpresent fire…so strange to think that somewhere else in the world there are things growing! 😉

    • So I am wrong ? I tought July is for hiding indoors and doing whoopies, not ( doing sweet bugger all ) there in Tassie 😀
      Not that bad of an winter here in Western N.S.W….Am Burning ethanol for heating, and only done it 3 times yet…Still, long way to end of August.
      Next week’s Elders weather report, spring like, 15 to 18 C+ …Yayyyy, lots of trees will start budding, than, the frost will comeback and kill them all 😉
      That will mean the end of cherries for me, ( MY CHERRIES TREES )….Almost crying here, but what the heck, I will enjoy my Christmas in July staff party next week instead 😀

      • No ethanol here (but good idea 😉 ) but when my dad died, leaving we penniless middle aged student drop-outs Serendipity Farm and a small amount of moola to wisely spend we did. We put in a massive big Aussie made wood burning stove and a huge stainless steel hot water system linked to it. As it’s cold here for about 8 months of the year it was a good bet. It cost the same as a small family sedan BUT it was absolutely the right decision to make at the time. Now we get free hot water, free “heat” 4 ovens to cook whatever we bloody well like in and all the free drying time we like. I have a bread proofer built over the top to prove my bread and to allow me to crone it up with my ferments and magic potions and we have land out the back to attempt to be self sufficient on. We have diplomas in landscape design and horticulture tucked under our belts but buggery-bollocky’s all idea how to put it all into practice so we learn, we bumble around, we procrastinate, we watch the frost do it’s thing, we wait for rain and we try to figure out how to turn “time rich” into “material rich” in our own eccentric way. Glad to see someone else being incredibly optimistic with their lot ;). Love the idea of cherry trees. We have a small ancient specimen on the property that when the possums aren’t doing their best to swing from every branch and snap them off and scarfing any fruit before it even turns anywhere near pink, the pear and cherry slugs are doing their best to suck the leaves dry and render it lifeless. Nature really has it in for we humans who are trying our hand at “sustainable permaculture” hasn’t she? ;). Best drink your weights worth at your Christmas party, just don’t do what I did and proposition the work “Christian” when drunk out of my brains on free work booze… I didn’t live it down for AGES! 😉

    I wanted to thank you for the post. I’ve been doing some research as of late to determine what sort of garden plants can be planted right now. In the past, I have always lost everything that I planted in July due to the extreme heat and lack of rain, but we’ve been blessed with a tremendous amount of rain during these last few weeks and the daily temperatures have not risen above 95(F). So, it seems like I might have a chance at success this year. The link in your post gave me a very good list of options. 🙂
