Spinach and lettuce should grow quickly. I have tried broccoli, but it never developed a head for me.

Fall is a great time to grow leafy greens in your garden.

If you like them and have a lot of space, collard plants should be available.

I have had great luck with both kale and broccoli started around this time of year! If the winter is like last year, with a lot of snow/ice, it can be a little rough to keep them going. I usually plant in August, but due to the heat have held off till now. In the winter I just throw either a plastic tarp or some of that landscape fabric over the plants if we're expecting icy rain. If we're expecting actual snow, then some stakes to keep the fabric from crushing the plants helps.

I've also planted collard greens and lettuces, but I've never had much luck with those (I think because I tend to not harvest at the right time).

I usually plant about 6 kale plants and about 4 broccoli plants. Many of the recipes I use these veggies for call for a large quantity, so that amount lets me always have access to a decent harvest.
