My husband and I are relocating at the end of May to Anderson, SC, and I would really love to be able to still have a garden this year. Is it too late to start, and if it's not, what plants would you recommend this late in the season?

You might still be able to set out tomato transplants (look for healthy plants in larger pots and shade them for a few days after planting to minimize shock) and you can plant seeds for beans, melons, squash, okra and other warm season vegetables. Be sure to keep the soil moist while the seeds germinate. Avoid the cool season plants such as peas, greens, and broccoli or cabbage or wait and plant them for a fall crop. Enjoy your new garden!
