There’s nothing like having home-grown vegetables right at your back door, and now’s the time to prepare your beds for spring vegetables. Spring crops include cucumber, tomato, watermelon, and beans.
Decide what vegetables you want and where in your garden they’ll be located. Make sure your site gets plenty of sun and is near a source of water.
Get your soil tested to find out what nutrients it needs. Your county Extension office can help with this process.
Purchase or start your transplants or plant seeds directly in the soil. For best results, choose varieties recommended for Florida.
Water and fertilize appropriately, and keep an eye out for pests!
