Peter Henderson's Gardening Calendar


from Gardening for Profit, 1866

Apr., May, June, July, Aug., Sept., Oct., Nov., Dec.

JULY—The remaining part of the spring crops are cleared off in the early part of this month, and by the middle of it, unless the season is unusually dry, all the ground is planted with the second crops of Celery, Sage, Thyme, Late Cabbage, Broccoli, Cauliflower, or Leeks. Little is done to these crops this month, as but little growth is made during the hot dry weather, and newly planted crops are merely stirred between the rows with the hoe or cultivator. Some of the other later crops are now maturing for market. Bush Beans, Cucumbers, Potatoes, Squashes, and in early places, Tomatoes; also succession crops of Peas, Beets, Onions, Cabbages, etc., such of these as only mature during the end of the month, render the second crops rather late, unless for the later crops of Celery and Spinach.
