In Zone 8, which includes Austin and surrounding areas, we are still planting vegetables and herbs.

From seed:

Lettuces

Mustard

Radish

Spinach

Transplants:

Mustard Greens

Lettuce

Spinach

Peas

Herb transplants:

Cilantro

Dill

Fennel

Parsley

Chives

Oregano

Onions!  My onions from Dixondale Farms will be arriving the first week of November and will go into the ground as soon as they get here.  You can still order onions and they can be planted through late January.  The earlier you plant them, the bigger they will get.

Strawberries! You can plant strawberries for several more months.  Mine are already in the ground.   Give them good soil, and hefty cover of mulch, and pick off the blooms to allow the root structure to form well.

Sometime in November or December, Asparagus and bare root Blackberry plants will start arriving at the nurseries.  I’ll keep an eye out for these as I’m going to plant both.  Asparagus takes 2 years to produce, and I am the least patient gardener ever, so we’ll see if I make good on that promise.
