Although it seems like the sun will scorch anything in its path, it is still time to plant some heat hearty vegetables in and Around Austin.

First half of the month:

From seed:

Chicory, Chard, Corn, Cucumber, Eggplant, Okra, Black-eyed peas, Peppers, Salsify, New Zealand Spinach, Malabar Spinach, Lima Beans, Beets

From Transplant:

Okra, peppers, tomatoes

Second Half of the Month:

Chard, Chicory, Sweet corn, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Okra, Black-eye peas, Peppers, Salsify, New Zealand Spinach, Summer Squash, Winter Squash, Sweet Potato slips, Tomatos

Herbs:

Basil, bay, catnip, chives, comfrey, epazote, lavender, lemon balm, lomen verbena, Mexican mint marigols, mints, oregano, pennyroyal, rosemary, save, winter savory, thyme

If you want to grow pumpkins for Halloween, or just for Fall in general, start thinking about a 4’x4′ patch to plant them in.  The general rule of thumb is for Halloween, plant pumpkin seeds on the 4th of July, which is fast approaching.
