It is not to late to plant. I have a little more space in my square foot garden, that I decided to grow some pickle cucumbers. My husband had great success last year. He just wasn't up for gardening this year so I thought I'd take over. The beans, garlic, strawberries, tomatoes, lettuce and peppers are growing strong. I'm adding pickles now.
I love these newspaper pots. I, not only don't need to go out and buy pots, but it's biodegradable ... not to mention, I'm recycling. Keep in mind, Cornell University does not recommend using magazines because the ink they use has high toxic content.
