Across North America common veggies to plant at this time of year include salad greens and lettuce, peas, beans, carrots, radishes, spinach and beets. These can be planted direct from seed and should mature within 60 – 90 days. Kale is another hardy vegetable that will grow for the winter in most regions, and in fact thrive in cooler temperatures.

The success of late season crops varies quite a bit by region, but check out this breakdown of planting by region to be sure that you’ll get a good harvest.
