Q.Will beets still grow in September/October?
My beets were in the shade for most of this summer, but now are out in the sunshine. Will they still be able to produce bulbs this late in the season? I don’t want to give up on them.

Actually, they are right at a point where they should be planted for a second harvest of the year. Leaving them might allow them to mature fully for a good harvest in a couple of months.
