Marianne Lipanovich added this to Get a Jump on a Cool-Season Vegetable Garden
Go underground. Start quickly maturing root crops, like carrots and beets, early in the season of course, but also plant them at the end of summer to keep them going well into the fall. Both can be overwhelmingly productive if you have a single large crop, so just plan to keep sowing small rows or patches successively. That way you’ll always have something ready to go but won't be staring at a sea of greenery and wondering if Peter Rabbit is available for some selective garden pruning.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Cool-Season Vegetables: How to Grow Beets
Planting and care: Be sure the soil drains well and is free of rocks and lumps, which can hinder root growth. Keep sowing every month through spring and fall to ensure a steady crop. Plant seeds about an inch apart and cover with a quarter inch of compost or vermiculite.
What else to do in October? It's easy to become obsessed with leaf raking and other fall chores right in front of you. But remember what a great planting time this is. Plant cool-season vegetables. Most fall–spring crops need well-prepared soil in full sun. These are easy to grow from seeds sown directly in the ground: chard, carrots and radishes. These are easier to start from nursery seedlings: broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower. Watch for snails and slugs as the weather dampens. Plant cool-season flowers. It's best to get them in the ground soon — which might give you blooms by Christmas. Almost all cool-season annuals prefer full sun; you may have to protect them from late hot spells. Most reliable are calendulas, Iceland poppies, pansies and violas. Plant natives. This is the ideal season for planting California natives. To locate hard-to-find species, visit a sale put on by a local branch of the California Native Plant Society. Volunteers have grown the plants and help sell them. Check here for locations Much more to plant: Lawns (sod or seeds), perennials for spring blooms, and most shrubs and trees except frost-tender tropicals.Boost roses. You may be able to squeeze out one more bloom from roses this year. Cut off faded flowers, fertilize the soil with rose food and water deeply. Hold off the main pruning until after New Year's. Keep watering. Unless early rains surprise us, just about everything will continue to need irrigation. Check for moisture to be sure. Use a trowel or shovel to see what the top 2 or 3 inches of soil are like. Don't forget your lawn.Fertilize. Give lawns a fall feeding if you haven't already. Look for yellow signs of iron deficiency on citrus leaves; supply a shot of special citrus food containing iron if necessary.
2. Plant good-sized seedlings Raising vegetables from seed can add weeks onto the time it takes them to mature, particularly during the colder months. To make sure you have good-sized seedlings ready to plant in the cooler months, either sow seed for winter vegetables in late summer or autumn or buy punnets of seedlings online or from nurseries and garden centres. Well-established seedlings also resist cold weather and attacks by slugs and snails better than newly germinated ones.

Cool-season vegetable garden: Popular and easy to grow in fall and spring: beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, chard, kale, lettuces, leeks, peas, radishes and spinach. For the connoisseur: arugula, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, celery, Chinese cabbage, collards, endive, fennel, garlic, onions, parsnips, salad greens and turnips. Surprising cool-season crops: including asparagus, potatoes and rhubarb. Yes, they are often thought of and grown in the summer, but they prefer the cooler temperatures of spring and fall.

Cold frames and cloches let you put out vegetable seedlings earlier in the season and keep crops producing later in the season. They’re available commercially, but you can also make your own. Hinge the top of a cold frame to allow ventilation. If you want to plant directly in the garden, simply put the cold frame in place and remove the lid when the air temps warms up, replacing it as things cool down.
