HARVEST FRENCH BEANS
In warmer areas you may be lucky and be able to start harvesting a few French beans from your raised beds or containers at the end of this month. Don't just pull the beans off the plant because the stalks are quite strong and you may well damage the plant.

The best way to harvest French Beans is to cut them off with scissors or a knife. Failing that, lightly hold the stem and twist the beans off.

HARVEST SUMMER RADISH
Harvest summer radishes, see our main radish article by clicking here for full details.

HARVEST EARLY VARIETY CARROTS
By late June the first carrots will be ready to harvest from your raised beds. Don't wait until you have large carrots, harvest them when they are young and tender. Simply grip the foliage at the top of the carrot and gently ease them up.

This should be easy in the soil of a raised bed. Continue to harvest carrots up to mid-August as and when they are ready.

If you have any early carrot seeds left over, sow a few in the empty spaces left by harvesting. A lot will depend on the weather but there is a fair chance that they will mature into edible carrots before the end of the season.

SOW MORE LETTUCE SEEDS
See our main article on lettuce for detailed instructions and a video showing how to sow lettuce in raised beds and containers.

THIN LETTUCE SEEDLINGS
Thin lettuce seedlings to about 10cm / 4in apart initially. Later in the year when they start to touch each other harvest the small ones and eat them, these are the most delicious of all lettuces. See our full article on the care of lettuces here.
