    Typical fall and winter crops are lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, Greens (kale, collards etc..)
    Flowers for fall and winter are limited, I plant pansies and primroses this time of year. I recommend planting transplants (small plants) of all of the above. The kids will love the instant garden. My 11yo does not like waiting for seeds to germinate. I hope this helps.
