It's not too late: what to plant during June in Vancouver

There’s nothing quite like a Vancouver summer. The sun is shining (most days), the temperature starts to climb, and this is evident in the hoards of people hanging out at Kits Beach and cycling the seawall.

On the gardening front, June has the perfect conditions to plant many crops in your space. For those of you who believe you might have dropped the ball on your garden this year, fear not! Below, we will share the vegetables that can be either planted or transplanted right now and still yield incredible results for the rest of the summer and beyond.
