It's getting a bit late now - but you could probably still get away with lettuces, radishes, turnips etc for a late crop. If you sow them straight away you could also still get French and runner beans. I think you can sow spring greens now (but I'm not the brassica grower in the household - my husband is so I'm not 100% sure). Next month you can sow winter hardy salads (especially oriental greens like mustards) and broad beans (hardy variety) in October to overwinter.
