Q1. What kind Vegetable I can plan now?
Q2. What kind of thing that I have to pay attantion now?

Thank you,


Answer: It's too late in the season to plant warm season vegetables such as tomatoes, squash, corn, eggplant and peppers but you can plant cool season vegetables such as lettuce, green beans, peas, and carrots.

You'll want to prepare your garden bed prior to planting by first choosing the sunniest spot possible and then spreading 4-5" of organic matter over the top of the soil. Dig it in to a depth of 6-8 inches, level the soil, then plant your vegetables.

Best wishes with your new garden!
