What to plant now?

What to plant now?

The last of the garlic I planted in October will be pulled up today. I will now have a 5'X4' veggie bed area with nothing in it. It seems wrong to have such a large, empty spot in the middle of summer. Any suggestions on what I can put there now? I'd like it to be a veggie but it doesn't have to be one. Zone 6-7 (it matters which chart you look at) Long Island, NY.
