Crop to follow after garlic?

I've some handsome garlic in a bed in the polytunnel (cloves planted November last year). They will be ready to be pulled late July/early August and I was thinking of what to follow them with.
Are there varieties of Calabresse that would produce heads late Autumn if I sow them in pots now and plant after the garlic is pulled?
Any other suggestions welcome...

The Oriental brassicas say to sow after midsummer to avoid bolting (so pak choi and the various unpronounceable things from here)

French beans will crop in late autumn if planted in July. You can start them off in pots, too.

Let me know if you want any seed. I accidentally bought Roquencourt twice. It's my favourite (yellow) dwarf French bean, but even so I now have plenty of seed. tahir

Deffo French breans. Turnips or carrots will do too
