The garden keeps going in the fall, some plants the same, others best for this time of year. The frost improves the taste of kale, mustard and turnip greens. Turnips will also last to the end of fall, protected by the soil. Beets can be kept until after a frost or two. Green onions left from the year before are ready to harvest at this time.

If frost is predicted the tomatoes can be covered, but sooner or later some will be picked green. Many times there will still be tomatoes for Thanksgiving that have been picked green and ripened inside.
