We recently planted some turnips, two varieties of carrots, planted more beans, along with bunching onions, peppers, pumpkins, corn, and collards as well. I did let my kids help pick and it’s always fun to see what they pick out.

Something else to also do this time of the year if you haven’t been keeping up with it is fertilizing your garden. Being that it is still quite hot here, it’s important to keep providing good nutrients to your plants via the soil.
