July Planting in NC

by - July 03, 2012

Because I like to make things easy for you, here's a quick table of crops you can plant in July in the coastal and piedmont regions of NC. If you live somewhere else, try Google. It's pretty great. (Sorry, that was snarky. We are zone 7b and our first frost is Nov 1(ish), so add or subtract days to your timing based on your frost date.)
