Vegetables You Can Plant In August
Summer is in full swing and our spring crops are probably producing great vegetables by now. It is not to late to plant a second or third crop in August and have great, organic food well into the cooler months.
I posted an article a last month on what vegetables can be planted in July and it was met with great comments and lots of shares on social media. As it was a great success, I decided to look for what can be planted in August too.
This is important if you are prepping and want to use the vegetables to can or freeze for the winter months. Having a fall or late summer garden will save you a lot of money and best of all, your food will be organic and fresh! So get to planting your garden without delay and you will be rewarded soon enough with a bounty of wonderful vegetables.
In the link below are lists, by U.S. region, of which vegetables and herbs you can plant in August. Unless specifically listed as “transplants” the items in this list can be direct-sown in your garden this month.
