|A Plant by Any Other Name: Southern Peas, Cow Peas, Black-Eyed Peas|
What vegetables can I plant in the beginning of July in San Antonio or Austin?
Right now you can plan Warm Season Greens, Okra, and Southern Peas.
What are warm season greens? Some ideas: Amaranth, Malabar Spinach and Purslane. Purslane is often considered a weed-we don't plant any but it grows anyways and you can eat it. You probably have some growing in your yard right now.
In about a week you can start planting eggplant transplants and tomato transplants.
A brand new gardener asked me what transplants are. They are just the plants you buy at the nursery. Basically, plants as opposed to seeds. Check back with us July 17th to find out what you can plant during the middle of the month. Happy Gardening Texans!
