If you don't already have your cold frames up and planted, you'll be hard pressed to be able to harvest much before the frosts get thigns and the snow starts flying in your zone. Unless you're a really warm zone 5. I live in a chilly zone 5 (but with the weather this year, we're just barely seeing tomatoes at the farmer's market, barely). You need your season-extending deals ready to go or planted by mid August if that. Past Halloween, you're not going to be getting anything but possibly mulched root vegetables out of the ground (if it's not frozen solid yet).
My winter plans? I'm not even trying. First I need to know whether I'm going to be in this house next growing season, whether we'll be renting, or whether we might be buying something else. Ah limbo. Good times. *snort*
