It's only mid July, yet I'm already thinking what to plant coming up soon.  Anyone have big plans yet?  This is my first year with SFG and so I've obviously never planted a 2nd summer/fall crop.  Looking for inspiration!  Very Happy

Ugh, yes.  The summer garden hasn't really gotten going yet, and it's less than two months before first frost up my way.

SO, I've been thinking about planting some peas, cauliflower, broc, as well as some lettuce & things that might over-winter well like parsnips & carrots.

What do you have in mind?

I just check my calendar and saw that today is 10 weeks til our first frost date. affraid So I went ahead and reseeded my peas. Our spring ones just starting to produce. I need to replant my spinach, kale, chard, and lettuce too but haven't gotten to it yet. This is my first year growing in Montana and I already am not liking the short growing season.

I planted Butternut and Acorn squash (from seed) July 1st so that I can harvest them in early Fall. I think they take about 90-100 days to reach maturity. I hope they do well as this is my first year I tried planting them. Very Happy

Broccoli, more spinach, peas, and kale for now. Lettuce, radishes, and so on a bit later.

I'll have to limit my fall/winter crops to one or two beds and purchase more hoop house materials next month.

I sowed the seeds for cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and collards the other day.  They are sprouting up now.
These will go in the raised beds outside.  The second batch that I sow will grow in a greenhouse grow bed.  Along with a 3rd batch.   
I wish I could grow  Iceberg lettuce.  That is my favorite snack.  I been snacking on leaf lettuce in the spring and buy the iceberg during the summer.
Any suggestions for a nice crispy lettuce that grows well in  semi-mild southern winters? (outside and in a greenhouse)
I  thought about tring the iceberg in the greenhouse during the coldest parts of our winter.  I have no idea what to expect....but the 7ft side walls will be down most of the winter so it doesn't get too hot on sunny days and it keeps the frost off the plants.

Other than that....have some turnip greens, beets, onion and  carrot seed standing by for the right moment.  

Peas?   Are ya'll talking about snow peas or  field peas?
I was wondering if anyone grew the snow peas in the fall- early winter and how they do ?

I'm curious about the peas too.  What type of peas make a good fall crop?   How late is too late for beans...my current crop is fizzling due to beetles! 
I've never grow under a hoop house.  Which plants do best under netting?

I'll be planting carrots, beets, beans, peas, parsnips, all kinds of lettuce, spinach, turnips, broccoli, cauliflower, and I'm sure something else I'm forgetting. I have no idea what I'm doing so will have to see what comes up and turns into food.

I still have pumpkin plants growing (if the pickle worms haven't gotten into them), gourds, okra, and peppers. I planted some onion chives and oregano the other day because I read they are perennial. I already have basil and parsley. My cilantro bolted (that's my new word I learned recently) the other day but I haven't pulled it out yet.

My seeds should be here any day and I'm excited. I think I can plant the beans, peas, carrots and beets in July. I'll have to wait until August and September for the rest.

I hope it's not too late for my fall garden. My boyfriend and I will be digging the beds tonight and I'll be planting on Saturday: 
- red russian kale
- rainbow swiss chard
- winter bloomsdale spinach
- winter density lettuce
- bronze arrow lettuce

i'm also thinking of putting some chives in there somewhere. 

Next Thursday i'll plant carrots & beets, maybe garlic. Aren't you supposed to keep carrots and chives/garlic away from each other?

You are about a month early for garlic. The rest you are right on time, although I would hedge my bets and see if I could find some starts for kale and spinach to augment my seed sowing.

It is still to hot here in LA to start a Fall garden besides Tomatoes. Temps are still in the 90's and the Bells and Sweet peppers are still producing like crazy as well as the Eggplant. I did plant some Butternut and Acorn squash, but I still have to wait to plant Broccoli, Cabbage and Swiss Chard.
