Growing up so fast

Post  bjwinterton on 4/14/2010, 9:12 am

I've never seen a garden grow so fast. EVERYTHING is up and seem to be growing what seems like an inch a day. Does anyone know how many planting/seasons we can get in florida? Two or three? It really is fun to see it growing, I can't wait to eat it.

I saw the title to your thread, and my first thought was you were talking about your kids! I should have paid attention to which forum you were posting in-it makes sense now!

Growing up so fast

Post  bjwinterton on 4/14/2010, 11:27 am

I have kids growing up too, but some days (like today) not fast enough! My garden is much more coorperative, quiet, and produces so much more than my kids.

I haven't planted outside of the spring and fall planting season, but now that I got my seed starting closet built, I am looking forward to experimenting, with perpetual gardening. I gotta get myself to take good notes for this.

I could use some help in understand spring/summer/ fall planting. I know the information is in the book, but I haven't had the time to sit down and sort it out. Anyone have a quick reference rotation list of florida planting to help a busy Mom?

about half way through there is a chart for warm season and a chart for cool season. with planting date info.

They also go through all vegies and recommend varieties for florida.

Use there search for anything from trees, to flowers. A lot of florida specific info. Seems like most gardening books just don't get very detailed about tropical and sub-tropical environments.

I don't know if i'd call it a quick reference, but it's a good reference.

There is a ton of info on this website, not just the page I linked. The information is specific to FL. From pests, soils, seasons, ect... flowers, shrubs, trees, veggies. Don't forget to search their site if your looking to try something new, be it produce or ornamental. I am trying plant ahead for next spring, as in addition to my veggies, I want to all around landscape my yard, and this site is a huge help.

Jon,
I'm REALLY enjoying the site! They do have a wealth of information. I'm going to call to see what publications they might be able to mail me. I'd love to get some native wildflowers going so hopefully they'll have something for that too.

Thanks! There's some great information on that site about hand pollination of squash, which is something I'm working on right now.
