Temperatures have hit 100 degrees (plus) in Louisiana! Can we still plant anything or is it too hot for the seeds to germinate?
According to this Louisiana publication, we can plant the following:
broccoli seed (after 7/15)
brussels sprouts seed (after 7/15)
cauliflower (I’m assuming seed on this one. My chart didn’t specify.)
chinese cabbage (after 7/15)
bell pepper (seed – only until 7/5)
bell pepper plants (after 7/15)
tomato plants (for a fall crop)
Here’s what I’ve planted recently despite the high temps that has germinated and is growing:
watermelons, cantaloupes, cucumbers, collard greens
This month we will also be planting:
crowder peas, black beans, pumpkins and butternut squash
To see actual planting dates, please visit the LSU Ag Center.
Are you planting any crops in July?
