Need some help with what to plant now. This heat is really making it hard. My lettuce turned tough which I guess is normal as it is a cool weather crop. I have some space ready....what should I plant?

I'm having the same issues. Some of my stuff didn't do so well and so I have a ton of open spaces to plant stuff, but nothing with a trellis or room for one of any kind (the stuff on my trellises are doing great), but it has sat there for like two weeks because I just dont' know what else to plant there. I already have a TON of peppers (of all kinds) and so I don't really want to plant any more of those...I'm tempted to just give up and wait until my fall planting, but man that seems like such a WASTE! Would love suggestions also...

Eh, I dunno. I just ripped out my peas and planted scalloped squash (bigger than patty pan?) and a gourd. I'm totally winging it to see what kind of weather we get and for how long. DOUBT I'll get any fruit with this late planting and my cold state. LOLOL We'll see.

I just planted some radishes after ripping up some bush beans. I didn't hold out hope for much, but after making the soil fluffy and planting them in a shallow uncovered hole, all but three sprouted and are doing wonderfully. I have three new bush bean plants that I need to start hardening off so I can transplant those into another square.

I've also been placing my orders to get the seeds I want to start for fall crops. Everyone is trying to tell me to start the seeds now, but I'm waiting until August to start them (mainly because I'm going on vacation for two weeks and I don't think the hubby will remember to tend to them =P ). I would say, why don't you try direct sowing some of the fall crops you want to try and see what happens? The soil's warm and the days are still warm, so for some of the stuff it should help them come up quick. The worst that could happen is that the small amount of seeds you try could fail, but at least you would know and you could help spread the word of your trial and error here! But if all goes well, then you can get a head start on the startin' for fall. The advantage too, is that you don't have to worry about hardening off or transplant shock.

Or, try to plant a few herbs. I stopped by Lowe's and my local Farm Supply store, and they still had some herb plants, pepper plants, tomato plants, and even a few squash and melon plants. There are still plenty of warm hot days left where you might be able to get some harvest from those as well, it'll just be a bit later in the season is all. I also saw some onion sets now that I think about it. Those could be some nice scallions in the making.

God I wish I had another garden so I can take all of my own advise. LOL. I almost wish some of my stuff would start dying off so I could!!

Bad bad bad thing to say... affraid

I heard that you can plant spinach starting in late july for september and later picking. I got 2 kinds of seeds - flat leaf, and savoy (crinkled type), and put them in the fridge. They are supposed to sit in the fridge for 2-3 weeks prior to planting.
Also radishes are supposed to be all season plants (mine scorched last month, so I planted a new batch). I also added 2 varieties of melons just for curiosity sake and they germinated immediately. We'll see how they do.

Bush beans -- by the time they flower, the temps will be lower. If you have the room, any of the summer squashes. Cukes can go in now, as can okra. OR wait a couple of weeks and plant your winter veggies. Here in zone 8A, first of August for direct seeding of broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, etc, and the middle of August for transplants.
