I sow Swiss Chard at this time of year - I'll be picking it in the autumn and in mild spells through the winter, right into the spring.
You can also plant brassicas - Brussels sprouts, Curly kale, Purple and White sprouting broccoli and Savoy and January King cabbages. It's too late to sow them now, but you can buy the plants right now at nurseries and garden centres.
In late October I'll be sowing Claudia Aquadulce broad beans , they'll grow a few inches and then sit the winter out - in the spring they'll romp away and you'll have an early crop. The ones I sowed last autumn spent the winter under about 18" of snow, but we've had a fantastic crop this year
Isn't gardening wonderful
