    I just saw this on Facebook this morning, and thought of this thread:

    Vegetables and Herbs to Plant in August

    By Colleen Vanderlinden,
    About.com Guide

    August is a fabulous month in the vegetable garden for many of us. The summer crops are overwhelming us with their productivity (hopefully!) and the crops we sowed last month are coming along beautifully. You can still plant in August. For many northern gardeners, the focus will be on fast-maturing cool season crops for fall (as well as planning for winter gardening, if you have a low tunnel or greenhouse to grow in). Southern gardeners, though still dealing with high temperatures, can start looking forward to some relief as well.

    Below are lists, by U.S. region, of which vegetables and herbs you can plant in August. Unless specifically listed as "transplants" the items in this list can be direct-sown in your garden this month.

    Grower, that's awesome! Is it just from the about.com organic gardening facebook page? I don't see any recent posts on there...

    I'd love to have a monthly "plant this" come up on my news feed - I'm always stumped about this stuff, esp. in a new region.
