What Seeds to Plant in August

What vegetables to plant in August

Wondering what to plant in August?
In the West, we start seeds for the following vegetables in August:

What to plant in August: Green Bean Seeds
Lettuces, spinach, beets, carrots, green onions, cilantro, basil, bok choy, mizuna, kale, peas, green beans, broccoli, sugar snap peas, radishes and cabbage. Now is a great time to fill in bare spots in your garden or to start seeds to plant into places where cucumbers, basil or other summer veggies are at the end of their production.

Veggies to plant in August: Cool Weather Vegetable Seeds

Vegetables to Plant in August-September

Some of the cool weather veggies will last even after a few light frosts, we think carrots even taste better after the cold weather has arrived. Once the cool weather starts to come in the fall, you can also put simple hoops over your garden and cover with greenhouse film to keep things growing throughout the winter months and get an early start to spring!
