There isn't much that you can sow now which will mature before the winter. With luck you may just get a harvest of fast growing crops like Chinese cabbage, Pak choi possibly turnip, radish.
However there a number of crops you can sow/ plant now or in the next few weeks that will overwinter to produce early crops next year.
You may be able to find some spring cabbage plants in GC's, they will give spring greens in April and produce full hearted cabbage in early June.
Autumn onions sets planted in Sept/Oct will give you a crop in June. Some varieties of Broad Beans and Peas can be sown in Oct/Nov they will crop in May/June.
Under cloches there are varieties of lettuce which will survive the winter and give an early crop.
