Are night-time temperatures consistently above 50-60 degrees? Then soils should be warm enough for you to set out your tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, starts of melon, squash and other summer annuals.
Tender herbs like basil and summer savory will do just fine.
Go ahead and plant your pole bean seeds around posts arranged in a teepee of 6-8 ft.
Plant seeds of sunflower and bush beans plus Brussells sprouts and kale for your fall harvests as well.
Continue to sow lettuce seed for cut and come-again baby greens. Try spinach, too. The hot days can make it bolt but warm soils will help it sprout fast and you’ll have baby spinach very soon.
