The spring planting season in the Southeast is very long, which means there are so many opportunities to plant fruits and vegetables and enjoy them in your home (or give them away). If you haven’t planted anything yet, it’s not too late! Here are 12 things to plant in late spring in the Southeast.

12 Things to Plant in Late Spring in the Southeast


Fresh tomatoes are great for salads and sandwiches, while cooked tomatoes can be made into sauce and preserved.


There are so many different peppers you can plant, from not spicy at all to over the top spicy! Peppers can be used raw or you can roast them and add them to other dishes.


While they do struggle with surviving pests, there’s nothing like squash from the garden, and they usually produce so much you’ll have to give some away.


For years I didn’t think I liked cucumbers until I grew them in our garden. There’s nothing like a crisp cucumber that you grew yourself. And from there you can move into making pickles!


Okra is delicious in succotash, jambalaya, or fried, or you can pickle it!

Sweet potatoes

While it’s probably more cost effective to buy them at the store, it’s also really satisfying to grow root vegetables in your own garden!


While not one of the more common things to grow yourself, these grow well in the Southeast and are great as a side dish!


What’s better than a slice of fresh watermelon? There’s nothing like it.


I love growing herbs and being able to run out and just cut some off for what I’m making. Basil actually grows better the more you cut it so you can just have one plant that will provide all you need!


Rosemary is delicious for baking as well as adding as garnish to cooked dishes.


Make tea, add as a garnish, or make it into a condiment!


Fresh thyme is amazing for making a rub for chicken or pork, and you can also use it for pickling other vegetables.
