one of the small joys in my life is to volunteer nowadays at a local organic farm..... when younger i once had this majestic, huge garden, with raspberries growing along the back edge, a pumpkin patch, a flower garden and a vegetable garden, all looked over in loving attention by moi.... it was my first garden ever.... but now i live in solid clay North Carolina, and i also live under a kajillion trees, so i get no sunlight at all...hence my volunteering at the local farm, where i find some sanity under the sun, with morning glories growing riot along the fence line, listening to the sweet bird song. Gardening is so darn therapeutic!!!

as for starting now from seed, i think you are just way too late, except for maybe a cooler climate loving vegetable like broccoli or cauliflower..... if you plant today you should get nice crop in.

On the farm, we have one of those huge hightowers which makes for hothouse conditions and we have already planted our indoor crop (from seeds we started in May) that we will harvest in October and November and our other veggies we will seed right into the beds in September to harvest in December and January.... you can always try a very limited crop of certain varieties of tomatoes that will grow in your kitchen window, as will onions and peppers, you just have to choose carefully the variety.
