  • Direct sow sunflowers & other summer annuals (such as zinnias)
  • Plant:
    • Beets, broccoli, carrots, celery, swiss chard, kale, loose leaf lettuce, radish, potatoes, turnips
    • Perennials
    • Summer blooming bulbs (gladiolus, amaryllis, lilies)
    • Dahlias
  • Preemptively spray for whiteflies – release encarsia
  • Nematodes for soil
