Am I too late to plant a garden this year?

Hey guys, we just got a new house. There is a garden that is already dug up, but needs tilled this year. It is 15'x25'. Id like to till it this coming weekend and plant vegetables if its not too late??? Any advice will be appreciated.

Depends on where you are on what to plant....but you should be good with most things. Cures, zucc, certain tomato, squash, beans, etc are all still good....check maturity dates on the veggies. 90 days until the end of August.....
Start tillin!

I'd wait for late summer on the cold crops. But all other veggies get at it. Definitly not too late, heck last frost date to plant was just 2 weeks ago. Plenty of time to have some good homegrown this year.

You've got a lot of growing season in front of you. A little late for cabbage, peas, cauliflower, and Brussel sprouts, other than that you should do well. Potatoes don't like a lot of heat, but you'll still get a decent crop.

go for it just get started plants from the store, radishes are a fast grower and i replant them all summer, and you can plant some things now that will be fine in the fall like broccoli and cabbage.

From September to April my world revolves around hunting the rest is preseason.
