Collards overwinter well.
Do you want to overwinter, or just plant for "Fall"
I can just about keep the brassicas alive through January here..you might think about that.
Some peas will produce in winter-fava types, other peas you can plant now and they will germinate in Spring. Of course, I can plant carrots now, and you can probably squeeze in another crop of radishes and beans before a good freeze. Plant things like rhubarb and asparagus, any fruit/nut trees you can find, etc. Buckwheat, Wheat....

that I need to put a row cover on the spinach. Is that right?
What else could I do now in or for the garden? We've recently started a new
