Mulch to moderate soil temperature and retain moisture, and lots of different kinds of flowers blooming all season to attract bees and other beneficial insects. Amend your soil with good stuff too, like Happy Frog.

Knowing what to plant when is crucial to your success as a veggie gardener here. In addition to the calendar Kevin posted, the one from this site is also a good guide: Urban Farm.
