Mid or late summer isn't too late to plant summer veggies. In fact, seasoned gardeners often like to plant successive crops every four weeks or so just to stagger the harvest. And to make it even simpler, save yourself the hassle of digging in the hot sun and opt for a container veggie garden.
Here's how to do it:
If you live in a colder climate with a short growing season, check with your local extension agent or trusted nursery for the best varieties and timing for a successful crop. Some crops like tomatoes and peppers are especially cold sensitive; when nighttime temperatures drop to 55 or below, they stop growing and begin to yellow.
