EUGENE, Ore. — Even though it’s July, it’s not too late to plant in your garden.
You can pretty much plant all your herbs. So lavender, rosemary, sage, basil, lemon verbena–the list goes on and on. Feel free to plant those throughout the summer.
You could also plant fruits, like apple and fig trees. Just get lots of water on them.
Blueberries and raspberries are great to plant now, too. You may get a little bit of fruit on them this season, but you’re going to have a nice, big established plant next year, so your harvest is going to be great the following year.
For other produce, you can plant lettuce and cilantro. Both of these go to seed really fast, so they’re ones you want to harvest a few times and then re-plant.
Don’t forget all your underground crops, like beets, carrots and broccoli. They’re also great into the cold weather, so you can keep planting succession planting of them so you can enjoy a harvest throughout the year.
The summer may be hot, but it’s not too hot to plant a great garden.
