Summer - Not a lot of vegetables can be planted in July but there is still time to plant some quick growing squashes and be able to harvest before the winter. Herbs like basil and oregano can be planted at anytime during summer and fall.

Harvest precious rainwater. Remember to turn off the sprinklers when it rains.
