Will this excess rain ruin my beets or fennel?

Don't want to pull them just now but don't want to let them ruin. Anyone know?

        on a raised bed, they should be fine.and maybe even the finest you ever had!

      I have raised beds and we here in NY have had bouts of excessive rain on and off. No beets this year, but the fennel is spectacular!
