Welcome to the SFG Forum! Nope, not too late but it depends on what you want to grow and what date you typically have your first frost. Find out when that average date is and then check out myfolia.com for number of days to harvest for the vegetables you want to grow.

Hi rhodysue and :welcome:to the forum!   Here's a link with some information about your region: The National Garden Association: New England

Looks like your growing season is very similar to mine here in Vancouver, WA.  Typically here gardens for summer produce are planted between Mother's Day and Memorial Day, but you can find starts at the big box stores still.  I was at the local nursery this week and they only have a few of their veggie starts left.  But certainly it's not too late to find tomatoes to transplant and likely a few squash types (cucumbers, zucchini) and peppers.   It's the perfect time to focus on a fall garden - things like brassicas (broccoli, cauliflower) and peas and carrots can all be direct sowed in the summer for a fall harvest.  Find the average first frost date for your zip code at this website: Dave's Garden.com and count backward to today to see how many weeks are left in your growing season.  Then use the appendix charts in the book to see what you need to start planting and when.  Ask us for more help whenever you need it.  Good luck!
