I posted this elsewhere in the AG forum. Seeing as how it applies to 'FL only' and it's plant related, I thought I'd re-post.....
"IF' you live in FL....... I recomend a book called MONTH BY MONTH GARDENING IN FL by Tom MacCubbin. I'm consatntly going back to mine, to check on different info. If you 'only use' the chapter on veggies, it's well worth it.
Mine is dog eared, wrinkled and has a coffee stain or two.....lol... I can't give it a better recomendation then that.
The chapter on veggies recomends which ones to plant in our 'cool' season' and which ones for our 'hot' season...herbs too. They have a chart, breaking FL into 3 sections, which tells you ' what and when ' to plant in your area.
Lots of good tips through out the book. It covers more then just veggies...grass (no not the kind they smoke...lol)...citrus, roses, flowers, palms, bog plants, house plants,vines, perennials, ect.
Growing vegetables for fun and profit in Hell.
Now seriously what is growing in your "system" right now. IN THIS 100 inferno.
I am now growing or should I say torturing
I have a few tomato plants with some fruit left on. They gave up growing during my cycling period. There are also some smaller 1 foot high or so New plants growing.
Pepper plants have some real nice now turning red bell peppers coming to maturity. No new flowers or substantial growth.
I germinated some Beans and transplanted them two weeks ago. Some flowers no beans yet still only a foot or two long-big.
Several Herbs are doing great.
Some Red chard is still producing.
I also germinated some Lettuce. (last year I had them all summer) The plants are a few weeks old - transplanted 2 weeks ago. Growing slowly?
I will be changing some of the Vertigro pots to Hydroton and some Hydroton mix (perlite - Coir)
Oh yea that gang of voracious Tilapia fingerlings.
