25 Things to Plant in May| Zone 8

Share with your friends!

It’s not too late to get planting! There are so many things you can plant right now in zone 8!  I can’t wait to get my basil going again. Fresh basil is one of my favorite herbs! I could make pesto, and put it on pasta! Yum! The list of things to plant in May is a good one. I’m happy to see luffa on the list for May! I’ve never grown luffa. Have you?

Currently already growing in my garden we have cabbage, collards, cucumber, carrot, garlic, jalapeno, tomato, kale, romaine, squash, and I think there are a couple more I am forgetting. I also have several herbs growing in the landscaping, and on the porch in a big beautiful planter.

I just put this planter together this spring. It’s something I ‘ve been wanting to do for a while now! I found these beautiful planters (here is one similar on Amazon but double the price) on sale at home depot. I got the plants at a local nursery. I have three types of rosemary, a basil I’ve never heard of, curry, and variegated lemon thyme. Plus, a few flowers for a touch of pretty!

My garden is full but I do have a few spots to put a few items in the landscaping. I just need to pick a few items the chickens will leave alone! They love to nibble on everything I don’t want them too! That’s why I had to put a fence around the new raised garden bed!
