For california: okra, onions, garlic, lettuce, chard, mustard, parsley, rosemary, oregano, thyme, fava beans, peas, peppers, shallots. There's a heat tolerant broccoli called 'piracicaba' that grows VERY well.

A lot of brassicas would grow well here - but you need to sow them in august and every critter in the state is starving in august, so the birds eat the seedlings. If you had a way to protect them I think brussels sprouts, ect, could work. Once all the weeds start growing this isn't a problem.

Right now you should be planting onion seed, garlic, fava beans, peas, greens, cool-season grains. Fava beans are an awesome winter cover crop, I plant them everywhere that something else isn't growing because they fix nitrogen.

I only plant the things which I use the most and like. Things like Spring onions, Radishes, Cabbages, New potatoes, Spring greens, Morel mushrooms, Watercress etc. Carrots and Peas are another favorite vegetables that I like most and have planted.

Does it have to be vegetables of some sort?
I still have non-flowering plants but still find it beautiful and luscious. :)

This year i planted vegetables such as raddish, green leaves, cucumber, tomatoes and onion. Now i am planning to plant few fruit trees also. I prefer to buy trees from Legg Creek Farm, offering high-quality fruit trees that have low chilling requirements.
