Q.Growing Season

I know beans and carrots are annuals and peppers and tomatoes grow for years. What I wanted to know is how long the growing season is that they will produce vegetables.

In ideal conditions, these plants will normally put out fruit until fall, or the first frost. I actually had tomatoes produce throughout the month of November this season--a first for me in zone 7b. Within your zone, you may be able to get fruits just as long, if not longer. Weather, growing conditions and variety will all dictate the length of the growing season--two to three months for most.
