start now to have veggies after the heat but before the frost. find a shaded corner and let kale, broccoli, peas, and other late season crops. the new sprouts will also bring vibrancy to the hot tired state most summer gardens are in. Also "bee" sure there are plants attracting and supporting pollinators during this dry time of year. most garden plants are done with flowering and forming fruit, but supporting bees now after the garden's traditional bounty is intact keeps the garden charted as a hot spot for good bugs, enriching next year's experience.
