The Q&A Archives: Fall Planting For Beets And Potatoes

Question: When is the best time for fall planting of beets and potatoes?

Answer: Mid-July is generally a good time to sow seeds of beets for a fall harvest. Potatoes are better planted in the spring (March) because they take several months to grow and produce tubers. Hold off on the potatoes and plant a cool-season crop such as cabbage or broccoli for a fall harvest along with your beets.
