I'm sitting here in Zone 6 (SW MO) looking at the bare spots in the garden where the lettuce used to be and thinking I would like to plant something there!

With any luck it will be November before we have a frost, so that is a good three months!

What suggestions have you? Ideas? Notions? (Nothing too exotic, please, I am a "meat and potatoes" person, if you know what I mean).

Anything is better than an empty spot. Our growing season is limited also, and I hate to see even 2" wasted without it producing something. Even if it's spring green lettuce, it's better than an empty spot. I keep replanting bush beans, those produce really well for me here and dried beans. Herbs are a good thing to plant, because you can dry them and they are so good to add to any recipe. Pok choy or Bok choy is also a great producer and is great cooked with garlic and olive oil.

I would think that you could still grow some pumpkins. Just go for a quicker maturing variety. Also, it's not too late for some melons.
