June is National Perennial Month. It's also the perfect time to plant beans, beats, melons and summer squash.

Yesterday was the official start of summer, and we are already experiencing our typical summer weather pattern of hot, humid days and frequent heavy rainstorms. 

Which can dampen almost anyone's enthusiasm to be outside working in the yard or garden. But June is the time to plant corn, carrots and many other vegetables, as well as some of the more heat-resistant herbs. And it's also National Perennial Month, a time for flower gardeners to try new plants that will add color and texture to a landscape.

Joining us to answer your gardening questions are Campbell County Extension Office Horticulture Agent Sarah Stolz; Turner Farm Veteran to Farmer Training Program Manager, Rob Lewis; and Boone County Cooperative Extension Horticulture extension agent, David Koester.
