- Plant seeds outside: carrots and bush beans and I might plant a second round of corn. I didn't have very good germination rates with my corn and now the potato bed is available.
- Plant seeds inside: It's already time to start some fall crops indoors! I'm not sure how these cool weather crops are going to do in a toasty potting shed. I guess I will find out. This month I need to start onion, cabbage, Chinese cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and head lettuce.
- Weeding: A never ending story!
- Pest patrol: Try to keep the squash bugs, vine borers, and Japanese beetles under control along with any other pests I run encounter.
- Mulch the rest of the beds.
- Bench in the woods: What should be simple: buy bench and put in the woods, I've made complicated. I've decided I want a cozy outdoor daybed with a mosquito net canopy. Unfortunately outdoor daybeds are expensive, so there's going to be some diy involved in this project.
- Start installing a watering system: As summer arrives and watering becomes more and more important, I really want a drip irrigation system.
- Start on the pea gravel garden paths: This goes with the watering system. To install the watering system I will have to dig up the garden paths, so when I fill them in I want weed-free gravel paths.

Revisiting June Garden Goals
We're halfway through June, so perhaps I should post my June garden goals...
