Sarah, any of the cut and come again salad crops, carrots, radishes and lettuce will set and grow in this warm damp weather. You will not get show stoppers but the shorter carrots will be sweet and crisp, home grown salad is always tasty.
Some garden centres or if you are lucky enough to have a local nursery will have trays of Leeks Cabbage and winter greens ready to pop in the ground now is a good time to put leeks in.
How about sowing seed for next year using part of your plot as a nursery bed, browse the seed packets in the garden centre to see what will do, I had success with Wallflowers this way and other plants are started this way.
Not everything works for everyone depends on where you are in the country, we are often three to four weeks behind the South although we still manage to grow many of the same things, just later.
Experiment with your plot and sometimes we old gardeners go against the book of rules, rules are made to be broken, you learn by your mistakes. Hope this helps.
