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

In November the planting frenzy continues for all the state of Florida, heaviest for South FL planting some summer & most winter varieties still. Harvest should be picking up too with a mix of some early winter & late summer. The hot fall has found favor with some late okra & looks to be a great season for tomatoes, cauliflower & broccoli with Brussels sprouts having a slow start. It's a good month for local diverse veggie eating. 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, kale, Kohlrabi, Mustard, onions, radish. Last month to plant~ spinach, strawberry & collards.

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

South FL all beans, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, collards, corn, cucumber, Kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, mustard, onions, all peas, potatoes, radish, spinach, tomato, turnips. Last month to plant strawberry.

Hurricane Sandy's Sand (Skyepony)
Hurricane Sandy brought millions of dollars of sand to East Central Florida. The new tidal pool/trench is where the beach used to end & the ocean began. Sandy brought far more beach than I've ever seen in this area. Not only is the sand bar new, the old beach is ~five foot higher than it used to be. It used to be 9 stairs down to the beach now it's only 4.

FullBeaverMoon.. (suzi46)
and the smallest full moon in North America.. This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.

I've been crazy busy. Should have left more. Got the photos up. Unlike the ones that flew away, the parade & ceremony left time for a ridiculous amount of photo taking. It was hard to whittle them down. There is maybe 18 in that series. Enjoy!

Another nor'easter looming on the horizon,If I scream UNCLE,you think mother nature will cease and desist?
Especially for those in New York and NJ,don't need anything more right now.

I hate it for you all up there. I've half figured another one, probilby weaker & more cold core was next. Part is the over all pattern, that takes some time to undo.

Hey Skye!
Came over this morning when I saw Atlantis Rollover and was confused to find nothing!

Now I see.

I get the fun/sad mixed emotion thing.
I'm sad myself...without the fun.
Maybe I'll make a point of getting over to see her and pay my respects when the project is finished.

Hope you have a really great weekend!

Hades wins 1st:)

Everything is dead but ROSA. She looks to be the only survivior. The tendency this season has been for the survivior to be long lived..we'll see. All the models take her out to sea, except LBARS goes for MX. I like sea. Models aren't expecting long lasting raging storm except CHIPS.

Wabit~ I agree.. Sandy has been crippling.

Finn~ Hope your BIL gets his power back soon! It's been so cold. He was prepared?

I went to the Atlantis Rollover this morning. She went from the VAB to the Visitor's Complex. They have to put it inside the building before they build the last wall. I'll have pics up in a bit. Was sad but fun. There was a parade with Merritt Island High Band. She came down the road~ people removing signs, light signals in her path..she was always unstoppable with humans using their minds to solve what was in her path..til the end of the space shuttle program.

Hope she won't be like the Sandi on our list ...
