Here's a good link at Southern Exposure Seed Exchange on What to grow through the summer here in Florida. I've purchased quite a few seeds from SESE. I learned about Southern Peas from this post and purchased Pinkeye Purple Hull and Piggott Pea varieties.
Sniff sniff. The bull seems to like it. Hopefully our other vine will produce some fruits!
This summer I have the usual suspects, plus a few additions: Pigeon peas, Sunchoke (from Grower Jim), Cassava (from David the Good), Roselle, Eggplant, Papaya and Okra. I've never eaten eggplant in my life. I love okra in soups, hubby hates it.
The fruit trees I planted last summer (Lychee, Loquat, Meyer lemon, Cavendish banana, Jaboticaba and Grumichama) are all doing fairly well except two - the loquat died and the Grumichama was poorly but it is hanging in there.
Meanwhile, I'll keep working at fixing the soil in the yard. Inch by mosquito infested inch. Mulch, mulch, mulch!!!!!!
