If you really like beets, and since that area is now empty, there is time to plant another crop. It will be close though. They won't be ready until into October. If you're still harvesting there, you better not plan on another crop.
Carrots should be done now, but now you can start looking for those nice fat pea pods. That is depending on what kind of peas you planted. I don't like the kind where you eat the pods; I find them tough. I like the kind where you sit at the table and split those pods, going after those tender peas inside. Yum
- Shell and wash
- Pack loosely into jars leaving 1 inch at the top
- Cover with boiling water
Remember what I said about following canner directions.
Freezing: (same day as harvesting)
- blanch for 2 minutes in boiling water. 3 minutes in steam
- freeze immediately
