If so and you grow tomatoes and vegetables, please contact me as I'm trying to find out when to start what???? I know broad but after living the last 2 1/2 years in Bradenton now moving north a little and to a place that isn't constantly spraying, spraying the chemicals, I'm hoping to start growing some veggies.

So any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there. I'm in Clearwater & have 2 garden beds. My tomato plants are growing very well but its still to hot for them to flower & produce. I am having great luck with peppers (any kind), corn, squash, okra, sweet potatoes & watermelon rite now. You might want to start some tomatoes maybe late August/early September & by the time they are ready to flower the temps will be a bit lower. In mid-late September I'm planning to start onions, carrots, greens, brocolli, cauliflower, radishes & lettuce. I don't know how the soil is in brooksville, but here in Clearwater its all sand so I have to use ALOT of potting soil, fertilizer (13-13-13 or 15-15-15) , peat moss & composted manure. Making ur own compost is super helpful if u can. I hope it goes well & good luck!!

Thanks so much brownthumb78 for the insight. I plan on having all potted veggies, as the soil drains way to fast and I'm not planning on standing out in 90 degree weather watering>>>>lol

I hoping with being this far north that maybe I'll also be able to grow some of my beloved perennials, I know not all, but to have some would make my heart sing. I love the southern living mags and their books.

thanks for the info
