Chinese Greens such as Pak Choi and Japanese Mizuna can be sown now for a quick crop that shoul dbe ready by October.
I have some carrots I sowed in pots in the second week of August which have germinated well and are now 2" high which is 2" more than the ones I've sown in the ground for the last 4 years. The pots were a last ever chance for them but it seems to be the way to go. Now we're back from hols I can move them to a sunny site at the front as they no longer need to be grouped in the shade for automatic watering and that should speed up growth.
You can plant onion sets for a crop next July and spring cababge plugs if you can find them. Bit late for sowing them though. It's also a good time to plant a new starwberry patch.
I'm also going to have a go at a last crop of beets, turnips and spnach in teh hope they'll germintae quickly in the September warmth.
