What can you sow mid-season that beats the heat? Lots! But it's important to stay on top of watering. Browse this collection for our best heat-tolerant varieties to sow now, or learn more about summer sowing here. For baby greens and lettuce, consider sowing in part shade or use shade cloth on hot days. Mid-season is also the perfect time to give your veggie garden a boost with another application of compost. Once your plants are off and running, add mulch to cool roots and retain moisture. Happy Harvests!
