A warm season plant may be injured by frost and should be planted well after the danger of frost has passed, which is generally in June in the Wood River Valley. Includes the Cucurbitaceae family cantaloupe, cucumber, pumpkin, squash, and watermelon, the Solanaceae family eggplant, pepper and tomato, as well as beans, sweet corn, sweet potato, and basil. The harvest needs to be done before frost sets in.
