Plant cole crops and root crops like turnips, radishes, and carrots.
Plant cool season peas, but don't delay! We have a narrow window for them.
Herbs can be planted this season of the year, in fact for perennial herbs this is the best time of the year to get those out. That includes other things too like garlic, and cilantro. One of our favorite spicy herbs in the garden is cilantro, and if you plant it in the fall you'll get a lot of harvest of those leaves that we use in dishes like frijoles a la charra, and by the time spring arrives, it bolts and goes to seed, and then we call it coriander. In the flower garden, larkspur and poppies can be planted at this time of year. Those are seeds that grow through the winter like our beloved bluebonnets, and then they come out in the spring with a strong flush of growth in their bloom, so plant them now for the best results. Divide anything that bloomed in the spring or the summer, such as an iris or Shasta daisies. Separate them out, replant them, and establish them, or share some with friends. And if you've got an area you're going to plant the wildflowers, go ahead and mow it down really close to the ground now and rake it out, get the soil loosened up a little bit with a rake, so you can get those seeded out soon.
