This Summer Vegetable Garden Plan Fills the Gaps After a Spring Harvest

Enjoy the season's freshest flavors, right from your own backyard.

Warm, sunny weather will help an array of veggies and herbs flourish in this summer vegetable garden plan. It's designed to follow the spring vegetable garden plan for a four-foot-square raised bed, so it has carrots, cabbage, onions, snow peas, and parsley already growing in it. Among these cool-season crops, you then plant tomatoes, peppers, green beans, and basil. You can also just start with this summer vegetable plan and plant extra green beans or herbs in the spaces where the spring vegetables would be. Then, you can follow with this fall harvest vegetable garden plan. Make sure to situate this garden in full sun, water regularly, and stay on top of weeding to boost productivity.
