Plant carrots in the fall as soon as the temperature is staying below 85 degrees. Choose a short season variety like  ‘Little Finger’, since carrots seem to take longer. Carrots can take a frost but not a freeze.

Re: carrots

You should still be able to plant any smaller carrots.  If you forget about them this fall, they often keep just fine in the ground over the winter here in zone 5, which is always a nice surprise when I find them the following spring.
