    I'm building a raised bed using cinder blocks, holes up.

    In the holes I will plant a few different kinds of mint and strawberries.

    I've got 4 romas, 2 cherry, and 2 slicers.
    12 serranos
    6 hab's
    4 Japanese eggplant
    6 bell peppers
    Once those fill in and get leafy I will plant rows of radishes.
    When late august hits I will start with the cool weather crops

    My DH built my potato tower and I have reds ready to go.

    I planted 9 jalapenos in a old grill.

    Peppermint is in a hanging pot over by the bee hotel with some borage and cat mint, and the cukes are in and growing up the fence.

    I have a dedicated basil bed-seedlings ready to go, and my herb boxes are waiting on me-LOL!

    Are you gardening this year?

    One more thing-if I can find the plants or seeds locally I'd like to grow some of those mini watermellons.

    I'd love to have some 3 to 5 pound home grown watermellons!

    keep an eye on the basil seedlings once you put them out. Mine are in a pot on the back porch & some stinking bug chewed thru the tender stems & dropped the leaves to the dirt icon_cry.gif I am not a happy camper!
    Reseeding! Damn bugs icon_twisted.gif

    Slugs? Rub some wet salt on the lower part of your pot and see if it happens again.

    Summer in FL, can't grow too much. My tomatoes are just starting ripen, peppers are ready; peas are done, and eggplant ready to harvest. I have a bumper crop of lettuce too.

    Summer, I may try some romaine in my one planter, and thinking about what else I can grow. NOT much with the extreme heat and sun.

    Since they are in a pot I doubt it's cut worms. Caterpillars maybe?

    Check Lowes or your favorite garden center. There are some great hot weather lettuce varieties. If your a fan of spinach you might try New Zeland Spinach-it's a busy plant icon_lol.gif .

    Have two types of tomatoes sporting unripe fruit, garlic should be ready to harvest in the next month, sunflowers a foot high, beets, carrots, and dill all about 2 inches high, chiles in (guajillos and poblanos), zukes and cukes started, volunteer marigolds popped up, just harvested my first (2) sugar snaps, hollyhocks, portulaca, and geraniums blooming. The radishes have started bolting already.

    4 years ago, I lost all my basil and parsley over night. Seriously overnight. Tomato worms. They cute little green guys. My tomato plants were far away from them, but when I saw all the leaves gone, took a closer look and found one of the worms. I couldn't believe it. And there were none on the tomato plants.

    Honestly 2 big plants gone over night. I'm sure they had been nibbling for a day or so, but couldn't believe how fast they were gone.

    I let half my radishes bolt. The pods they put out are better then the radishes, IMO.

    I haven't pulled them because the quail are really enjoying the greens, and we really enjoy the quail (except when they gobble up any unprotected seedlings). I'll try the pods. Raw? In salads?

    Sarasota, try basella! It's a tropical vine, very attractive, with dark green edible leaves that sub for spinach. Perfect for your climate!

    Yes. When the pods are about one inch long harvest a bunch of them. I add them raw to any and all salads when I have them icon_wink.gif
