What you can grow in July has a lot to do with your planting zone. New England and the Atlantic Coast area are getting some of the season’s warmest temperatures in July, so you need to choose seeds that like higher soil temperatures for germination. Since fall’s frost can creep in as soon as September, also choose transplant vegetables that like cooler temperatures as they mature. Your best results will come from getting as early a start as possible.
