Newly Created Planting Beds

The Back Story: Yesterday, 9/25/2020, we pulled up some much hated hedges, resulting in 3 new planting beds near our house. We’d like to use them to grow edibles. My Questions: My questions are as follows: (1) Are there any edibles that I can or should plant NOW in some freshly created planting beds; (2) should I begin with seems or seedlings; (3) what are the best sources at this time of year of seeds/seedlings; and (4) If It’s best that I not plant now, how best should I prepare the spaces for wintering over until I can begin planning in them? and (3) pulled up some much hated hedges on 9/25/2020. The plan for the newly created planting beds around the foundation in front of the house is for bulbs and ornamentals. We’d like to put the other three spaces into production of edibles. Unrelated to the hedge replacement beds, I am planning to try a Three Sisters Garden next year elsewhere on our property. Is there anything I should/could be doing now ton prepare the area to enhance the likelihood of success with this plan? Details: Bed #1 is 8’ x 15’ in full sun at 9:30 this morning, will have full sun all day, and has minimal protection from winds coming from the north. Bed #2 is 25’ X 10’ has some dappled sun at 9:30 this morning, will receive more sun as the day progresses, minimal protection from north wind, sheltered from south wind by large trees nearby, and protected from west wind by a 4-horse trailer parked close by. Bed #3 was an old foundation hedge on the back side of the house along a wall that began life as the west wall to a garage. The exterior wall is cedar log construction set on a concrete foundation. The bed is 3’ x 25’. As of 9:30 this morning, it was in full shade, but will be in full sun as the sun approaches its zenith and will remain in full sun for most of the afternoon, becoming shaded by trees farther west as sunset approaches. We would really like to turn this bed into a kitchen garden, as it is steps from the kitchen. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Attached are photos I took this morning of the 3 planting beds.

What plant is this?

I have a plant that keeps growing in my flower beds. It looks like a plant full of seeds when it "blooms". Is this a weed?

Unhealthy Oak Tree

My big oak tree has been losing leaves all summer in large amounts. The leaves start to get blotchy and brown some before falling off.

Vitamin D

Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Professor at MIT (they now see molecules) has shown vitamin d level is the marker for health in humans and with the research now coming out about cattle being not only much healthier but also the meat is tender do you know the healthy level in cattle. There is a five year study trying to find anyone with cancer vitamin d level over 50 but I cannot find the number is expected health in cattle even from animal expert studies.
