If you have several heads of cabbage you can put them in a cooler. It is insulated and mice can't get in. The cabbages will keep in a cooler in a garage for several months.
Also if it hasn't frosted yet and you still have tomatoes, you can put them in boxes layering between rows with several layers of newspaper. They will ripen slowly and you can have fresh tomatoes. The box needs to be in a cool place, but not cold, like a basement. You can also use the green tomatoes for fried green tomatoes. I just flour and fry in a skillet with shortening.
