July

Now is the time to plant pumpkins if you want them for Jack-O-Lanterns . They will require much watering and constant vigilance for insects.

JACK-O-LANTERNS

You may start TRANSPLANTS INDOORS for a second warm weather crop to be set out in September, though they won't produce as easily or well as the spring crop:

TOMATOES
PEPPERS
OKRA
EGGPLANT

Better yet, head to the beach or stay cool indoors!
