Q.Will beets still grow in September/October?

Zone Prineville, Oregon zone 6 | tonseth@olypen.com added on August 31, 2018 | Answered

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.
