Hi Mark
you can sow rye grazing and winter field beans till the end of Nov they both go over winter.When we were looking into this we found a very good web site  www.gardenorganic.org.uk  I think Paula your a bit late for muster, but saying that the weather is so good it could be August.
ps dont be sorry and it's not useless. :)
