I got to discussing this with a friend and realized that other folks might appreciate a list of nonmeat, nondairy, low-carb proteins...

Autumn is a good time for growing and eating leafy greens.

One thing that irritates the crap out of me is local-America only sells a "spring mix" of salad greens. There is no "autumn" or "winter" mix to offer the late-season crops. Some varieties appear in both of the cool-season phases, but others are mostly or entirely one or the other. I have described a version of winter mix from Terramagne.

Many types of lettuce grow well in autumn and winter.  In most parts of the country, they can be protected without needing a heated greenhouse.  Don't forget the old-fashioned way of heating, though: 'hot' manure such as chicken or pig.  If you put your aging bins in a greenhouse, or make a layer of fresh manure under regular dirt in a coldframe, that generates heat as it breaks down.
