Hot loving veges. Squash. Tomatoes. Peppers. Okra. Eggplant.
For insects and 10 to 20 percent shade. Spray them with food grade, kaolin clay water mix. It's double duty spray. Read up on it.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

What can you tell us about the garden site?
Shade? Clay/sand?

What's growing there now?
Bermuda grass?

If you have a new construction site, never had turf put down, red clay... You could grow pretty much anything...

Turf would make it harder.

There's a lot of time for summer vegetables... And summer annuals.

If you want to start stuff from seed...
Try beans, cow peas, corn, watermelons, cantelopes, okra....

Does any of that sound like something that you would eat?

There's still time to grow peppers and tomatoes from seed, but they're really not the best plants to grow from seed for the beginner.... They're sold at all the stores...

Flowers easily grown from seed include zinnia, cosmos, tithonia, sunflowers 4 o'clock.
Avoid most morning glories... But moonflowers are safe, and heavenly blue....

You will want to purchase lantana and salvia plants.

Oh yeah, what about deer and rabbits?
They can be awfully destructive in a veggie patch, and... Like flowers too....
