Sow short rows of salad leaves for interesting winter salads, winter spinach, oriental leaves, pak choi, turnips, spring onions (a hardy variety such as 'White Lisbon' will stand through winter - particularly if grown in pots and moved into the greenhouse/pollytunnel).
Hardy green manures such as field beans, grazing rye and winter tares can be sown up to the end of the month and will retain nutrients (until dug in) that might otherwise be washed away with the rain.
Spring Cabbage should be planted ou now.
Autumn Onion Sets can be planted now to give you a head start in the Spring. Dig in a little general fertiliser around a week before planting (or some well-rotted garden compost or specialist onion fertiliser).
