I don't plant many veggies in fall from seed aside from a few radishes and lettuces. But flowers? Oh yes, now is the time- all the way through February.
I direct sow:

annuals-
larkspur
red flax
toadflax
California poppies
breadseed poppies
paludosum daisies
alyssum
Queen Anne's Lace
nigella
bachelor buttons
elegant clarkia
nasturtiums
violas
Mexican hat
annual coreopsis

perennials/biennials-
yarrow
columbine
foxglove
feverfew

Hurray for fall! Now, if I could just get a few hours to clear out the summer stuff and toss the seeds out...

helen:

You are not colder than me or not so much colder that it would impact your choices as I listed.
