What to Plant in June

June is prime planting season at the garden.  I've seen many plots in the garden with healthy beds of lettuce starting to grow, tomatoes, beans and more.  I thought some people might like a list of suggestions for ideal plants for the start of June:

Swiss Chard
Lettuce, if you haven't already
Herbs like Basil, Parsley, and Mint
Green onions

There's problably more I'm leaving out--share with other gargners what you are planning now in the comment section!
