What can still be started for a fall harvest in July?

Posted by nick_b79 z4 MN (My Page) on

I'm thinking of starting some extra vegetable seedlings now to extend my harvest further into the fall.

So far, I'm thinking:
-zucchini/yellow squash
-55-day cabbage
-another round of green beans
-sweet peas (probably plant these more around Aug. to escape the heat)

I figure I can get the cabbage and broccoli sprouted indoors over the next week or so, move them to the deck, and get them in the ground by Aug. 1 as strong transplants. The zukes, beans, peas and squash can be direct-seeded this week. Any other suggestions for my garden? I'm good on the tomatoes, peppers, corn and watermelons already.

Here's a link to an article from the U of MN extension regarding midsummer plantings.

My peas rotted this spring from all the rain. Maybe I will try them again.
