That’s right! It’s not too late to start gardening. There are many vegetables and herbs that do well in cooler temperatures—kale, collards, spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, rosemary, and cilantro, to name a few. There are also other advantages besides having fresh produce after the summer—fewer pests to contend with, less watering required, and much less work, guaranteed. Come plan and plant with us, and take home a few transplants for your own garden.
