    If the weather is consistently warm (above 70 degrees) anything. If you get cooler nights or days below 50 degrees start with lettuce, carrots, spinach, onions. Most veggies need temps over 60 degrees constantly to grow well.

    I would start saving seeds now, and you can plant the seeds in little ice cream cups and start them in your window, then plant outside when the weather gets warmer. You can get cuttings of mint, Basil, and more. Then root the mint inside near a window, it smells great. You can use mint in many ways, such as salads, tea, drinks, as a decoration on a plate or dessert. Hope this helps.

    Near any tropical Vegetable is good for SF and the gulf coast. Climbing Malabar spinach (not actually related to Spinach, but tastes similar) Winged Bean, Yard long Beans, Jicama, Eggplant, Mirliton and Okra are you best bet!
