Beets and Carrots

wvubeermanSeptember 19, 2012

I thought i posted yesterday but now cant find it. But i want to plant some beets and carrots and did not know if this is too late to put the seeds in the ground. if it is, is their something else i can plant this late into september? I have read where once they start growing I can put straw on my beds and hold in some of the heat and not allow them to frost too much.

I'm farther south than you are and don't really know your zone but I planted beets and carrots the last week of August and they are doing amazing and I probably have another month before they finish. I posted a link below that might be helpful to you for next year.

Here is a link that might be useful: Planting Guide NC
