Hi Shane from Utah,
I garden in the arid Interior Northwest with 20 inches of precipitation
each year and first frost about the same time as your location.
Green beans is a standard for late planting but I stop July 15th. If you
don't have a frost until October - you can plant them now with likely
We plant Walla Walla sweet onion seed as soon as it cools in August and
the late Summer rains first show up. They were just harvested a couple of
weeks ago from last August's planting.
Try those quick greens like spinach, lettuce, & bok choy at that time
also. Most things just burn up right now.
Winter rye (NOT rye grass) can be planted most anytime from now until
first frost. It will suppress weeds and give you lots of green matter to
turn into the soil next Spring.
Best of Luck,
