OK, I'll try. First, you should know your USDA zone, or if in the West, also your Sunset Garden Book zone. For good measure, the AHS heat zone is useful too. If in Europe, USDA zones have been used in England at least. Then connect with your friendly (if underfunded) extension office for specific advice by your state and probably your region within the state. There should be publications for vegetables, other food crops, ornamentals, and trees and shrubs. You'll be coming across opinion pieces about easier plants to grow, hold onto any lists, and edit them for local conditions like drought or wetness.

Finally, you want to know what to do NOW. Take what lists for October you can find in your state/region, and try what strikes your fancy. Don't be discouraged if the first tries don't work, rather than ruefully admitting to a brown thumb, realize that there are many small tricks to learn before the thumb greens. But your ancestors have been sizing up plants for 200,000 years, and growing them for at least 10,000. You'll catch on in no time.

Hi Stara, it all depends on where you live. There is a great site called wintersow.com and they tell you all about planting for the winter and getting food. As peseta says it all depends on where you live, that will tell you what you can plant and what success you will have.

You can also try the extension office website for your area (Google the name of the closest university and the words extension office to find yours). Lots of free and very useful information geared to your area.

I would suggest your closest agricultural college, rather than your closest university. And yes, your extension agent will be delighted to help you expand your gardening skills!
