I have been gardeninginS Florida for decades now, The natural soil of Palm Beach
County is sand, that’s great for the beach, but what about my tomatoes?
If I don”t use container garden vegetables, I build an above ground elevated garden.
Our Garden consists mostly of old near rotten lumber to make my dirt forms. A nice
trip to the dump to pick up some free compost, fills the form nicely. Compost from
the local recycling plant, is a great, green way to make a garden in South Florida.
My wife and I go Saturday morning with a tarp, pitch fork, shovel and Hoe. The
compost is warm even hot and the wind blows it in our faces. I fill up my truck
and off we go. As I figure it, we get between $50 and $60 equivalent soil in bags
at the hardware store. The compost will go farther if it is used in growing container
garden vegetables when it is put into an elevated garden, it disappears quickly,
but will give better results for certain vegetables. As for the weather, I still
think that a majority of vegetables can be grown in the fall, winter and spring.
The summer seems to be too brutal for tomatoes and peppers, I am sure that there
are some varieties that are better suited for warmer climates, but I am happy with
my heirlooms and pink tomatoes in a limited time period. My wife complains that
Ukrainian tomatoes grow all summer long and do horrible in Florida. I find myself
explaining many times that we live in a subtropical zone, and that different things
grow all year round, just not at the same time. In the spring, there is not much
rain fall here, so watering of trees is a must, especially if they are young or new.
South Florida gardens have pests that can live all year round since there is no
real freeze to kill of any insects. Raccoons, squirrels, birds and armadillos are
just a few of the varmints that have to be accounted for in our gardens and yards.
My wife does not allow me to use any pesticides on our edible crops, just to keep
them as organic as possible. Each year is a new adventure in keeping our yards and
gardens healthy in South Florida.

In order to maximize what your home garden will produce, you must start new plants
constantly. I usually rotate between starting herbs and various vegetables. Every
month, I start a new couple of trays of plants as replacements and for new gardens.
Many plants need to stay inside during the hottest months of summer, to be ready
come fall, to take off growing. My wife, being in South Florida for only a year
now, plants everything all year round. This technique is not so bad especially when
you are not sure what will grow, your own food and when. Some plants will grow all
year round, like hot peppers, my little red cayenne peppers make peppers all summer
long. Mostly I find that herbs in general will do fine in summer. Some of the harder
to grow herbs like thyme, need more TLC before putting outside. Strawberries seem
to do consistently well in summer, which is why my wife wants a considerably large
area for them. My wife’s first year in South Floridahas taught both of us many
things about growing in South Florida. I know when reading the instructions on a
seed packet, now I ignore the planting or sowing times as the one’s posted are for
more northerly states. Very little of the US is zone 10 like South Florida growing
There is a simple way to control your weight. With the proper combinations of foods,
it can seem that something magical has happened when the pounds begin to melt away.
Just a few simple foods for an individuals metabolism are the only true quest that
a dieter has. They also have to realize that they can no longer eat the foods that
have put them in this situation. It does not mean that they can never have them
again, but only in reduced quantities and not so often. I will bring up the healthiest
combinations of foods for weight loss that I can find. Soon you will be on your
way to get Skinny Fast! Diets are for Dieters. Lets eat Healthy!
When you find out you don’t have to entirely change your life and eating habits,
and there are certain combinations of so called bad foods that actually aid in weight
loss, you may jump up and down for joy. The catch, is that these food combinations
are not the same for everyone’s metabolism. But generally, I like to follow some
basic rules of eating combinations, that I like to follow and some I try to avoid.
A basic one for me to mess up or to do well with is, Meats and sweets are ok together.
The trick is to keep starches out of this meal. No potato, no rice and no bread.
So for me, a mess of hot wings with celery and carrot sticks with blue cheese dressing
is just fine when I finish it all up with a nice bowl of ice cream. For me and quite
a few other people, will not feel or see the effects of the sugar and fat as the
protein counteracts and burns these naturally. Any sort of starch in the mix will
wreck the whole thing. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t eat this meal but once every
2 weeks, and there are other meals in line to replace it, or supplement it. A basic
fastweight loss technique is to not mix proteins and starches, or starches and sugars
and fats. My wife will make meals high in starch like potatoes and bread and rice
seemingly too much starch, but there will be no meat in the mix, and our desert would
consist of fresh fruits. “Meat & Potatoes” can be served together, but in much smaller
quantities, and the mainliner would be vegetables, raw and cooked.
There are many Healthy combinations of seemingly bad foods that will help your overall

getting a plant starting kit at your favorite hardware store, usually it will have
space for about 144 seedlings and cost about $7.95. Just a place by a window, possibly
with a southern exposure will house these plants for 2 months or more, depending
on what type of plants they are. The hottest part of summer is a great time to grow
your own food indoors, and by the time Fall comes, the plants are ready to put in
the ground, good for tomato gardening.
