Fall Vegetables for 9b

Many of you expressed interest in setting up and growing a vegetable garden this summer.

Most of the vegetables do not like extreme heat. I wouldn’t recommend the mindset of traditional growing seasons if you have never grown in Florida! Planning ahead makes the difference.

It’s not too late to set seeds out or pre-sprout indoors. This list will also work for Jan-Feb planting preparation for spring.

Fall is perfect for all the cool weather loving starts. The daily rain works in our favor if you’d like to try growing a fall garden. Summer requires daily watering and fending off heat loving pests! Everyone deserves a break from the heat!!! So give it a try!

Remember the prices on the produce aisle? That should be motivation enough! The best part is you won’t have to worry about how or where your produce was grown.

If you aren’t really “into gardening” but like a little spice in your life, why not grow some herbs?

Herbs such as oregano, rosemary and basil are great in a planter. They also enjoy a little cool weather. The oregano plant that I have is at least 20 years old! Ah fresh herbs. Just the smell makes me hungry!

Get out there and then you can Mangia Bene! (Eat Well). Ciao (chow?) No….🤪
