Herbs would be your best bet. I'm up in Washington however we've had awesome weather this year (keep up the global warming everyone!) and our cilantro and basil are doing wonderful. If you're able to start some plants in plastic strawberry / blueberry containers you'll find you can start anything and get something growing. If you can still get seeds at your store, grab some cilantro, basil, and if you are expecting good weather into late summer / fall you might be able to scrape some tomatoes and chives / onions together for homemade salsa!

veggies for fall garden

Here's a link to a nice article about veggies to plant in July, Aug, or September for fall and winter garden:

https://www.humeseeds.com/falwint.htm

Here's a link to a chart with spring and fall planting schedule for zone 7-8 for a variety of veggies (looks like you are probably in USDA hardiness zone eight)

(Well a different map I looked at looks like maybe zone 9, but the site below has a section for that too, you would just have to switch it over)

Here's one more, nice site, info about average frost dates in lots of cities with a planting guide

You probably have plenty of time to do a garden yet, depending on where in Northern Calif you are (coastal, vs high elevation)
