Carrots: Carrots work well with tomatoes because they share space well. The carrots can be planted when the tomatoes are still quite small, and can be happily growing and ready to harvest by the time the tomato plants start to take over the space.

Planting carrots mid-July will leave plenty of time for the vegetable to harvest for the Fall feast. Carrots will add a great addition this summer. They will not take up much space and can be left in the garden until used.

7. Spinach
