GROW RARE SEEDS | What To Plant In June

June marks the start of the summer growing season in much of the U.S., and there is an abundance of crops you can plant to take advantage of long days of sunshine and warmer overnight temperatures. Baker Creek’s Shannie McCabe shares some of her picks for great heirloom varieties you can sow directly into the garden in June!

    Just want to give an extra thank you for keeping us ultra southern gardeners in mind, you know June is our time of struggle lol

    Greens for hot weather should also include Malabar Spinach and Amaranth greens.

  7. dan joseph on July 30, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    It’s hot up here in Canada too.

  8. Ianofalltrades on July 30, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    I’m growing bush beans and green beans in the mojave desert in 110+ degree weather its been a challenge

  9. Lorinda Van Engelenhoven on July 30, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    The butterflies and bees loved the tithonia at my house last year!

  10. Cherokee Rose on July 30, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    I love your long beans, green and red the best. I am in deep south and nothing stops them. I pick every other day and come away with handfuls of beans. I freeze them immediately and get enough for many months.

    Good video, just subscribed
    Keep them coming

  12. Tonya Lewis on July 30, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Now that our cool wet spell is over, I’m planting my Kajari Melon seeds from Baker Creek Seed, which is just an hour away. How β€˜bout that humidity! Whew!

  13. Kristine C on July 30, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Excited last week found your site and ordered $300 worth of seeds πŸ™ˆ I have a problem lol

  14. mrspogadaeus on July 30, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Also, don’t forget if you are planning a fall crop, now is the time to start planting your flats indoors/in the greenhouse for brassica plants and other fall plants like Asian greens that might be good to overwinter. It takes 6 weeks from putting seed in the flat to the time you start thinking about planting out in late July to early August. I’m looking forward to trying some tatsoi this fall and winter, along with giant winter spinach and corn salad greens! Ivwas surprised at the fact that my cilantro overwintered through the snow and everything, with some of the seeds that had set last year sprouting super early this spring! I harvested the Slo-Bolt Cilantro all winter long!

    What do you consider the super Deep South ?

  16. Jennifer Ma on July 30, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Curious where you got your bee overalls, they’re soooo cool πŸ’•

  17. Diane Smigelski on July 30, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Thanks for the great tips on what to plant! I think I’ll head out today and put in some zinnias and pole beans! I love the red blooms of scarlet runners. It brings in the hummers along with the flowers I plant for help in the pollination department! Love your vids!

  18. J C on July 30, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Is Sacramento considered super deep south in terms of weather for planting

  19. 1aliveandwell on July 30, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Anything special about sprouting Jenny Lind melon? It has never grown for us.

  20. Heather Martin on July 30, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Thank you so much for adding deep South is so hard to follow seed packets when you live in Florida

  21. Brandon Miniman on July 30, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    I’m in zone 7a and my growing season might only have 3 more months because we sometimes have frost in September. What can I grow that matures fast?

  22. Amiee Andree on July 30, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Im deep south plant in shade cucumber any time its to hot months

  23. Nicole link on July 30, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Arizona leafy green June amaranth

  24. hyacinthABC Scott on July 30, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    I already ordered Chinese Multicolor Spinach and Giant Blue Feather Leaf Lettuce for my Louisiana zone 9B in hopes I could have summer greens. Is it too late to plant? Should I use shade cloth?

  25. Child of God on July 30, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    So happy to hear this right now. I’m in northern Alabama and I was getting so overwhelmed and stressed out because I still haven’t gotten so many of these things in yet. Thank you! Just the little pep talk I needed.

  26. gravitydaddy on July 30, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    Thank you so much for the time you’ve put into making this video.

  27. Roni M on July 30, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Can you define "deep south"?

  28. Boyd Gilbreath on July 30, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    South Florida: Okra. Watermelons. Plan to water every other day.

  29. Dustin Counelis on July 30, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Can you define the super Deep South?
    Are we thinking Macon Georgia and south or Orlando south?

  30. sarah reville on July 30, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Yay!! Thank you so much for this video!

  31. Blue Wolf on July 30, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    I always wait until June, in Upper Michigan you HAVE to.

  32. MindOf Mandi on July 30, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Great video! Thanks! And im in central texas lol

  33. Ariston Sparta on July 30, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Is Deep South a USDA garden zone?

  34. Niraj Chauhan on July 30, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    I enjoy your videos, thanks a lot. I get all my heirloom seeds from y’all at Baker creek. But I also save seeds.

  35. Forgotten_sKiLL on July 30, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Ahh!!! I’m so happy I found your channel! I saw you on True Food TV, and love your seeds! Can’t wait for your thousand head kale to come in!

  36. Herrington Farms on July 30, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    North Central Arkansas zone 7b. We are about to reach our triple digit temps. All is planted, second run on radishes and looking for the squash to be ready soon. Watermelons started from seed are HUGE plants and the deer ate the wild flower barrier that surrounded them. Second sowing of those troops is in the ground.

    Love the video.

  37. Kenneth Latimer on July 30, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Loved the video. Southwest Florida. Screwed until October. Yet I still try. The pests the major problem. They will destroy within 24 hours. We call it "combat gardening "

  38. Amanda on July 30, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    I love your garden set up. I wish you had a video on how you made your raised beds and the lattice.

  39. Victor Wadsworth on July 30, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Texas, not hot, WET, WET, WET every day & a half, three low electric bills in a row.

  40. IV MR GREEN XX on July 30, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    πŸ§‘β€πŸŒΎπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦The Ole Church 5 Acre Homestead dropping by. We are planting in June….zone 5A

  43. pilgrim57 on July 30, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Yeah… 60 degrees on June 12 and rain, rain, rain. My corn looks sick, my zucchini looks like I just planted it, and I’m guessing my potatoes will be little balls of rotten starch. Peas have germinated in ones and twos in their rows. Several tomatoes are looking at me saying, "Hey, you want us to grow, we’re gonna need a better climate." Oh and now we also have to deal with the cicada death march… πŸ™‚

  44. Paula Shelley on July 30, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Its 90 in south Carolina today…. but the humidity is kicking already!!!

  45. shanakay brown on July 30, 2021 at 10:01 pm

  47. Ontario Gardening on July 30, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Hello from Ontario, Canada! Most of our stuff is planted already, but I definitely still have some stragglers that I am going to get in the garden (or succession plant). Hope everyone’s seeds have sprouted!

  48. The Pervy Prepper on July 30, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Hello. I’m falling in love with this garden. Do you happen to have videos (or a Play-List) on the build of this garden space?
    I’d really like to see that. Thanks.
