Hello Jasmine,
You could start a mesclun mix, it only takes 3-4 weeks to harvest, and it's a good choice for a window box. Just "mow" with scissors, and the greens will regrow until the first frost.
You can also start onions now (for next Spring), kale (I love dinosaur kale), spinach, or satsoi.  In about 6 weeks, you can plant some garlic (for next summer.)

Oh my god, I love those! When did you plant them?

The only things I grew this season are herbs: Basil, Rosemary, Sage, Lemongrass and Parsley and Jalapenos. Basic stuff.

I don't have a garden space so everything is grown in window boxes.

Any suggestion on what I can plant now, for the winter? I hear lettuce grows well in the cold...?

Thanks,
Jasmine

Hi All,
This summer has not been kind to my garden, but I'm getting some crop (not as much as usual - no tomato give-aways this year).   Below is a pic of something fun I grew from seed this year.  These are Mexican Sour Gherkins.  They grow on a vine, look like tinsy watermellons and are a tiny bit tart with a nice crunch.   Really good to eat.   I bought the seeds from Seedsavers.org.  Grow something different next year!
