Both corn and cucumbers need a long, warm season to fully develop, so in your southern California gardening region you can safely plant now (June) and still have enough summer left to harvest fully mature corn and cukes. Beans prefer to grow in temperatures of 70F - 80F degrees. For best results plant in late summer for a fall and winter harvest. Burpee's Northern Xtra Sweet and Early Sunglow corn varieties will mature in less than 65 days, making them good choices for planting now. Try growing Blue Lake or Tenderpod green beans. You can order online at http://www.burpee.com or phone toll-free (800) 888-1447 to place an order. Enjoy your garden!
