Create a fruitful and colorful summer garden with our free garden plant. Once the soil warms, plant summer-yielding vegetables such as tomatoes and peppers. Toss in some herbs for extra color, flavor, and texture. When planning your garden, site this raised bed garden in full sun and well-drained soil for best harvests. Help decrease weeds and disease by spreading mulch over the soil.
Some of the vegetables in this garden plan transfer over from a spring vegetable garden—they either grow through the spring or can be harvested over multiple seasons. Check out the spring garden plan to see how to transition your garden.
