Not as far as I know.  
Carrots and lettuce are good for succession planting ("continuous harvest crops", in the book). I'm not as sure about beans: If I'm reading the chart in the book right (I have the 1st ed.), it says bush beans (seeds) can be planted until 10 weeks before the first fall frost date. Carrots, 9 weeks with seeds, and lettuce, 6 wks [seeds indoor, or transplants 4 weeks before frost]

At least one of my beans packets, if I recall correctly, says beans can be planted through July. I planted a bunch in the last two weeks and they're starting to come up. Keeping my fingers crossed.

My suggestion is to go to http://myfolia.com/, look up the plants you want to grow and find out how long it takes them to grow to harvest time. Weigh that against your average first frost date to determine if you have enough time left to grow them.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
