What to Plant Each Month of the Year in North Texas
This excellent chart (which lives on my refrigerator door) is put out by the Texas Cooperative Extension Service and has sections for vegetables, flowers, trees/shrubs/grasses.
According to the chart in June you can plant Okra, all melons and squashes, and southern peas. I planted recently some cantaloup, okra and pumpkins. Hopefully everything will survive the terrible heat - its been close to 100 all week. If we can afford the water we will hopefully have a fall garden. I have always wanted a huge shade cloth for this time of year, but they are pretty expensive. Yesterday Garry was also talking about getting one - I think a shade cloth would be cheeper than paying for all that water.
Take a look at the planting chart. You might be surprise to find that you can plant something every month of the year in this part of Texas!
