Gardening in Southeast Wisconsin

If you're like me, your spring vegetables are winding down while summer plants are on the rise! Tomatoes are showing their small green fruits, spicy peppers are ready to be harvested, beans are getting bushier, cucumbers are climbing! If you fell behind in your spring or summer garden, there is still time to plant for a fall harvest!

Direct Sowing:

  • carrots

  • beets

  • beans (snap and last call for dry here)

  • soybeans

  • arugula

  • cilantro

  • heat tolerant lettuce

  • sunflowers

  • zinnia

Indoor Sowing (second half of month):

  • final succession of sunflowers (if you like to indoor sow and transplant)

  • beets

  • heat tolerant head lettuce

  • basil

  • dill

  • cilantro

  • fall broccoli

  • radicchio

  • final sowing of fall cabbages and cauliflower
