IS it to late to plant a vegetable or fruit garden?(JUNE 10th). If so are there any herbs i can work on right now or any fruit that may grow?

The timing of gardening depends a lot on the climate where you live. In most places throughout the country it’s late, but not too late.  Your best bet for both herbs and things like tomato and pepper plants is to purchase plants that have already been started in small pots. Try visiting your local home/garden center or flower center to see if you are able to find these plants. The good news is that you can still plant Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower later in the summer for a fall harvest.  Things like leaf lettuce, spinach, and radishes grow so fast that those are easy to get in now or later for a late summer or fall harvest. Visit our Gardening How-To Guide for all of you other gardening questions and to get prepared for next year!
