Somebody more knowledgeable wil be along soon but I planted out some brocolli and winter/spring cabbages just last weekend. I had to buy them as plug plants (more expensive) as I hadn't got it together to do seedlings over the summer.... but next year I'll be ready.
I also planted a trench of autumn tatties. They were going cheap as they are all sprouted now so I expect they're getting to the end of the season on those.
There's also things like winter lettuce, chard and pak choi and autumn planted onions and garlic which will overwinter and steal the march on sets planted in spring although you run the risk of loosing a few over winter I guess and their beds need a bit of preparation.
We do the best we can with the information we have

When we know better we do better

I use these types of website to decide what I want to plant at any time of the year.

Just scroll down a little to see what you could sow in august. Then they have one for every other month of the year.

Broad beans can go in a bit later in the year, also onions.
