The answer is “yes” with a qualifier.
In Michigan, particularly in the Flint Area, we are considered to be in Zone 6 when it comes to planting.
Generally, we can expect somewhat mild temperatures with the possibility of a late frost which is optimal for most (but not all) vegetables.
The real issue as we make our way into Fall (we ARE past the Summer Solstice and daylight hours are getting shorter) is the waning of sunshine on your crop.
Obviously some of the fruits and vegetables that take longer to mature could be problematic, but many green, leafy vegetables along with herbs that will thank you for planting them after the real heat of Summer has passed.
Plant arugula, kale, and lettuces for a second round of harvest. You might even get a third crop. Most will be ready for salads in late August and early September.
Other crops you may try include: Arugula, Beets, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cilantro, and Spinach.
You can still try some more traditional veggies like carrots, tomatoes and the like, but you will be at the mercy of the seasons. You may be successful, you may not.
Why not give it a try?
A salad is still good in Autumn.
