I haven't been following this thread but I do have a few helpful hints on some of the things posted.
Yes, plant garlic in the fall and cover with ground leaves or straw (NOT Hay) for next years harvest.
Carrots will sprout better if covered. The seeds like darkness to sprout in. I covered my with plywood supported up by a border of bricks. In your container just place newspaper over it. They do like full sun to grow in.
Brussel Sprouts, Don't pick till after the first frost. They will be sweeter.
I'm not even thinking about my fall garden yet. My tomatoes are still green ! ! !
