But the key to success is planing the right plants at the right time of year to avoid any kind of frost damage and to make sure there is enough time to grow your crop. Here is a list below of great plants to start your late Spring early Summer garden.
Beans: Planting both bush and pole beans now that the soil and air are warmed up.
Beets: Sow beets now for a fast, early summer treat.
Cabbage: Cabbage is one of the easier plants to grow in the garden. Fertilize and water

Carrots: Plant carrots by mid-July a crop that will stay in the garden until used.
Corn: Most rewarding and fast growing crops to grow. Do a small plot of corn, working your way to a large field of several varieties.
