You can plant cool season vegetables. Here are some suggestions along with their average planting dates. You've missed the window of opportunity for some of the veggies that take a long growing season to mature, but there are still some you can plant now. Be sure to choose veggies with short days to maturity and you will be able to harvest before the first frost of the season. Here are the suggested planting dates for a fall garden: Beans - 8/1 - 9/1 (lima beans 7/15 - 8/15); Muskmelon (Cantaloupe) - 7/15 - 8/1; Beets - 9/1 - 10/15; Mustard - 9/15 - 10/15; Broccoli plants - 8/1 - 9/15; Parsley - 8/15 - 10/1; Brussels sprouts - 8/1 - 10/1; Peas, English - 8/15 - 9/15; Cabbage plants - 8/15 - 9/15; Peas, Southern - 7/1 - 8/1; Carrots - 8/15 - 10/15; Pepper plants - 7/1 - 8/1; Cauliflower plants - 8/15 - 9/15; Potatoes, Irish - 8/15 - 9/15; Chard, Swiss - 8/1 - 10/15; Pumpkin - 7/1 - 8/1; Collard/Kale - 8/15 - 10/1; Radish - 9/15 - 10/15; Corn, Sweet - 8/1 - 8/15; Spinach - 9/1 - 10/15; Cucumber - 8/1 - 9/1; Squash, Summer - 7/15 - 8/15; Eggplant plants - 7/15 - 8/1; Squash, Winter - 7/1 - 7/15; Garlic - 9/1 - 10/15; Tomato plants - 7/15 - 8/1; Kohlrabi - 8/15 - 9/15; Turnips - 10/1 - 11/1; Lettuce (leaf) - 9/15 - 10/15 Watermelon - 7/1 - 8/1.
