Confused about what to plant in a fall garden? And when?

I’ve gardened in the fall for many years and have to say its probably my favorite time of year for gardening. I like the veggies, the lack of pests and the cooler weather. Garden chores in the fall and the winter seem more like a fun thing I ‘get’ to do rater than something I have to do! Thats always pleasant.
