When to plant a garden in the state of Florida. tomatoes/green beans/potatoes, what ever grows good?
Where are you in Florida that you have good black dirt? I didn't think that existed here.....

It depends on your region of Florida. Your county cooperative extension office probably has a web site that will give you does the University of Florida - web site is below.

I'm in West Central Florida...I have to do raised gardening because the soil is awful. I can plant tomatoes now, and any "cold weather" plant. I'll be putting in cauliflower, broccoli, lettuces, green beans, peas, tomatoes and cucumbers this month.

I may need to cover the more fragile plants in December or January a few nights.
Reply:The weather in Florida changes from year to year. So if you want to grow these vegetables wait until Spring weather has officially started then you can start growing your vegetables. Between March-August even late September if it is not chilly you can grow those vegetables. During these months you will have the warm weather, rain, and sunlight needed to maintain a healthy garden. Fla has been experiencing droughts so I hope you have a sprinkler system or hose. If you want more advice go to Home Depot garden dept they have starter planter pots for vegetables and watch PBS for the healthy gardener. This man gives advice on how to protect your vegetable garden without using chemicals but concoctions of natural homemade remedies. I hope this info helps.

1 Good day for planting above ground crops. Excellent for sowing grains, winter wheat, oats and rye. Plant flowers.

2-3 Plant peas, beans, tomatoes, peppers and other above ground crops in southern Florida, California and Texas. Extra good for leafy vegetables. Plant link below

You should find the information in these links I am just finishing mine wah.
