As with some of the other vegetables on this list, you can have the best of both worlds with baby leaf lettuce and full sized lettuce. Just plant the seeds at one inch intervals and then start thinning them into your salad when they get to an edible size. If you like microgreens, you could start thinning in the first few days, but otherwise, you could wait until the plants have a few true leaves.

An average date has as many occurrences before it as after it, so you have a good chance of losing your whole crop in any given year that you push things this late. But if you watch the forecast carefully and stand ready to pick everything if frost seems imminent, then you can take advantage of these few added days of growing weather. Be mindful, also, that you are not just selecting a harvest date, but a planting date also. This means that your vegetables may not have matured if you need to pick them early.

From an October 6 harvest, since kohlrabi with its top cut off will last in storage for 2-3 months, you are ensuring yourself some fresh vegetables into December and possibly January. Of course, you could pickle it, dry it, or (ironically) freeze it for extended enjoyment.
