When to plant what & how in Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama.

In October the planting frenzy continues for all of the state of Florida, while we harvest the last tastes of summer. It's time to turn compost into your garden, improve soil & throw seed to the ground. Don't forget to rotate your crops, for example..legumes (beans/peas), followed by heavy eaters like corn/tomatoes, then root crops & leafy greens. Surround with herbs & flowers when possible. Below is what each part of Florida should plant from seed this month.

North FL beets, Broccoli, cabbage, Carrots, cauliflower, collards, kale, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Mustard, onions, radish, spinach, strawberry, turnips.

Central FL beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, collards, kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, mustard, onions, english peas, radish, spinach, strawberry, turnips.

South FL all beans, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, califlower, celery, collards, corn, cucumber, eggplant, Kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, mustard, onions, all peas, peppers, potatoes, radish, spinach, summer squash, strawberry, tomato, turnips.

My neighbor recently had a clump of Banboo removed and it cost $8000.to cut and chip. The chiping left a pile about 80 feet square and three feet deep. They poisened the roots. I havent looked but I wonder if the clump died? hummm

Quoting theshepherd:


LOL ;))

That bamboo looks great in "your" yard.

Always plant bamboo where you want "more" bamboo to create "more" bamboo which will of course create "more" bamboo.

My daughter, ignoring my warnings, planted bamboo between her pool and her neighbors fence at the last house she lived in.

The "nursery expert" told her, "This variety doesn't spread or take over".

I'll just say this, the day she sold that house was a happy day for me. No longer do I spend my weekend visits in "the bamboo forest".
I'm not sure what species your daughter had but it is true that tropical clumping-type bamboo spreads only slowly over the years. That species in my picture is a very tight clumper, just look at the base...that is three years of spreading. The more common type of clumping bamboo in central Florida is Bambusa vulgaris (either green or 'vitatta' yellow cultivar), it grows in looser clumps but it really doesn't wander that far either...I have had it in my yard for five years now. I would have no problem at all getting rid of my bamboo...I would just cut the culms at the base and then harvest any shoots that come up for food.

There is a very large difference between the rhizomatous bamboo species (example - Phyllostachys genus) and tropical clumping types (examples - Bambusa or Dendrocalamus genus).
If your daughter lived in any zone below 9 you can be reasonably sure* she did not have one of the tropical clumping species.
(*After some further research I did find a couple of clumping species that claim to be hardy in zone 8...top-killed in most years)

I am probably near the northernmost extent for that Dendrocalamus species in my picture. I know there is somebody else growing it in New Smyrna Beach but north of there?? I would like to hear from anybody.

P.S. It does not take a "nursery expert" to know what is what, just drive around your neighborhood and nearby neighborhoods, and look at all of the different plants. Learn it identify them, talk to the owners about their experiences. If you do not even know the species that was growing in your daughter's yard then you missed a chance to learn something.

Shep~ We are a little more spread out here. I've got three varieties. None planted near any houses. One is a tall one near the property line. After 10 or so years it matured to making some 70-80 maybe 100' high. Really made my neighbor nervous. We cut a bunch down for fence & stuff. I won't be harvesting a gazebo out of it this year or anything.

97L definitely the big topic today, but for a break I took some pictures of the Dendrocalumus giganteus bamboo that is really taking off the past couple of weeks after I dosed liberally with compost and water. Bamboo makes for a great windbreak and everything seems a little greener under its shade. The blue color on the culms is from a sort of mildew that lives in symbiosis with the bamboo.

Looks pretty good for launch, but rain actually expanding here, so don't know that I'll see anything.

Looking forward to your report, my friend!

Happy watching!

Three little words.

Red Tide Sux

:)

Member Since: September 11, 2008 Posts: 9 Comments: 10167
That is bad news Skye.
My sympathies for the people living on the Gulf coast. The last red tide here on the east central coast was Fall 2007 (1) though January 2008(2). Besides the heavy toll on all types of aquatic wildlife(3) it is also very hard on human beings living close to the ocean. I can recall many people being sick with respiratory problems and swelling of the inner ears, eyes, nasal passages and throat from the neurotoxins associated with the red tide bloom.

This article from the Center for Disease Control provides a summary: Harmful Algal Blooms
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
"...In addition to killing fish, brevetoxins can become concentrated in the tissues of shellfish that feed on K. brevis. People who eat these shellfish may suffer from neurotoxic shellfish poisoning, a food poisoning that can cause severe gastrointestinal and neurologic symptoms, such as tingling fingers or toes.

The human health effects associated with eating brevetoxin-tainted shellfish are well documented. However, scientists know little about how other types of environmental exposures to brevetoxins such as breathing the air near red tides or swimming in red tides may affect humans. Anecdotal evidence suggests that people who swim among brevetoxins or inhale brevetoxins dispersed in the air may experience irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, as well as coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Additional evidence suggests that people with existing respiratory illness, such as asthma, may experience these symptoms more severely."
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Large creatures such as whales, dolphins, manatees and sea turtles are also severely affected. From December 2007: 6 more dead manatees found in Brevard County. That last east coast red tide was rated as only moderate at its peak...I would hate to see a severe one.
-------------
1. Major Fish Kill Creating Stink Along Brevard County Coast
2. Test Shows Red Tide Still Impacting Brevard County Coast
3. Brevetoxins, like ciguatoxins, are potent ichthyotoxic neurotoxins that accumulate in fish

Sarasota County crews on Thursday clean up dead fish at Blind Pass Park. It's one of several spots in Southern Sarasota, Charlotte and Lee counties impacted by red tide. Mike Lange is using a metal detector at the beach and it doesn't take him long to also detect the symptoms of red tide. "Just making my lungs burn a bit, scratching in the back of my throat, causing me to cough," he says. Scientists at Mote Marine Laboratory study red tide year around, but they're keeping a close watch on this event. It's centered near Charlotte Harbor and it stretches for miles. Mote has been taking water samples to measure the harmful algae bloom's strength and on Friday, Mote and USF researchers will launch underwater gliders. "The USF robot will be going farther off shore, and ours will be staying closer in shore, with the idea that in tandem they'll be monitoring our water for us; to really get a handle on how big this thing is, how extensive it is," says Mote Senior Scientist Barbara Kirkpatrick. So how can you avoid red tide? Well, a website sponsored by Mote and a team of lifeguards make it easy to find out current beach conditions. Twice a day, lifeguards on Florida's west coast, report what's going on at their locations including wind, waves and indicators of red tide.

Morning all. Totally dorked that Atlas 4 launch this morning. It wolk me up. Did run out & get a pic of the fading contrail. Will post that later. Didn't win a pass for the SpaceX launch Sunday either but hopefully won't miss the launch completely.

Nadine isn't completely dead but we should prepare ourselves. Feel free to leave eulogies when the time comes..what ever you need to get through her transition & departure.

15L is OSCAR. Not expected to impact land.

97W-99W is new.

We also have out first invest int he Southern Hemisphere. Excellent call Hades!

Locally we are about to be troughed on again. Windows are fogged over in tropical moisture this morning.

The article accessed by that link on briar tips mentions a book written for physicians that had to improvise medications from the field during the Civil War...sounds like an interesting topic for some further research. The book can be accessed for either online reading or downloading on the Internet Archives site:
Resources of the Southern Fields and Forests, Medical, Economical, and Agricultural (1869)

I saved the link for some future reading.

shepherd - I agree with you on the lettuce, although it does help to quench your thirst if you can afford enough water to grow it. (A vicious circle where you lose a lot of fresh water in the process).

Thanx for the link :)

I started eating briar tips while deer hunting over in west Ga one afternoon.
I was sitting next to a small stand of apple trees and noticed the young deer would just as soon eat briar tips as apples.
My Darwin genes :) kicked in and I gave them a try.

I've always thought lettuce to be useless, so I'm always looking for alternatives.

I strayed away from hunting some time ago. I have a salt water addiction now.

Fresh Windsat 96L.. That is getting real close to a TD.


Gamma~ Getting some rain here. .27" with more on the way.

I think we are in for a pleasant winter..FL should be about average for temps, some cool, not overly warm. Wouldn't be surprised to feel both extremes at some point. Midwest & east coast should be colder then usual. Hot on the west coast.

Hades~ That pretty intense rainfall in Gaemi. Good bit of moisture in the Indian ocean. Air it still sinking there. Got a little lift over 96L..


Finn~ I sure seemed like a fun idea. Thanks for inspiring it! LONG LIVE NADINE!!!!!

Hi Skye,

Can you believe Nadine is still out there doing loop de loops in the Atlantic! She is not wanting to go away anytime soon.

We got 3.8" of rain last night..... so soggy around here all spring and summer.

almost craving the dry winter that hopefully is coming soon.... just hope it is not a cold winter.
