There’s still time to plant a summer vegetable garden.   According to the Marin Master Gardeners, when you’re choosing what and when to plant, consider how long it will take each plant to reach maturity.   June is a good time to put in the following plants for a back-to-school harvest:  carrots, corn, eggplant, lettuce, parsley, peppers, summer squash, tomatoes, and winter squash.   To find books in the library on growing vegetables, type in the subject heading Vegetable Gardening.  To find related books, try the subjects  Kitchen Gardens  and Vegetables.  You can also find information online about vegetable gardening from the University of California.
