Thats a good question for Boffer in your locality. Almost everywhere you could do a fall crop. I do several plantings in spring and more for fall then cover them with plastic sheeting at freeze up time and harvest tops and beets till Christmas time. They can store well in a pail in a dark corner of my basement most winter long. I like that because among other ideas I make a slightly fermented health tonic called beet kvass. Think about calling your local extension office for advice.

I planted two squares today. Will they produce? Only time will tell!

I plant 20-25 squares a year; the plantings are a few squares at a time spread out over a couple months. I think it's still safe to plant, unless your uncle's twitchy knee says we're going to have a summer long heat wave and drought! Wink

We can give beets a try together! I am in NC Midwest and it has been cool, cool, cool, so I decided to plant some beet seeds last weekend. 2 days ago it was 89*.....we skipped spring.....
