I have a small garden that my daughter and I created and we would like to plant some vegetables. Is there anything we can plant now?

Yes, it does depend on your location. These articles should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/vgen/fall-vegetable-gardening.htm
Obviously, it depends on where you live. I'm in zone 6, in Washington state. I have lettuce, spinach, kale, cabbage, carrots, beets,onions, mizuna (a type of mustard), and will plant some mache (also called corn salad) in a few weeks when the weather cools down. Most of these plants were started in my kitchen from seed about 4-6 weeks ago, and have been transplanted into the garden. It may be too late to start something from seed at this late date and could be difficult to find seedlings in nurseries this time of year. Most cool weather crops sprout and start to grow in warm weather but need cool weather to mature. When the nights start to be cool, I make hoops and cover with fabric row covers, then when the weather gets cold I cover with a second layer of clear plastic. Usually I have veggies well into January.
