Root crops, including radishes, beets, carrots, turnips, parsnips, kohlrabi, onion, rutabaga, garlic, shallots, leeks and potatoes will grow in your garden. Leafy vegetables such as lettuces ( black seeded simpson, romaine, bibb, arugula, mesclun mix, salad bowl ) cabbage, chard, rhubarb, collards, brussel sprouts, endive, escarole, garden cress, spinach, radicchio, and broccoli will also thrive. You can plant parsley, chives, cilantro, basil, oregano, tarragon, rosemary. And, you should have good success with peas and beans. When choosing seeds or transplants, check the number of days to harvest and choose those with the shortest growing season. If you'd like to experiment with tomatoes, try Siberian. Best wishes with your garden.
