When to plant what & how in Florida, South Carolina.
Ah May... the planting madness is done..sure in FL there is atleast a few things to be planted this month. A good time to assess how much room will be available when the squash, cucs & garlic are gone, to plant some replacements. Southern Peas are black eye, pink eye & cow pea varieties. They fix Nitrogen in the soil, a great summer cover crop that follows heavy feeders like squash wonderfully. They love heat & can dry on the dead bush to be picked after you return from summer vacation.
It's a good thing the planting has let up as the spring & summer garden begin to take over. Feeding, watering, staking/caging & harvesting is the main garden chores for the month with most likely a little bit of weeding.
North FL Lima beans, eggplant, okra, southern peas, sweet potatoes, Gourds & broomgrass.
Central FL ..Plant~ okra, southern peas, sweet potatoes, Gourds & broomgrass.
South FL sweet potatoes, southern peas, Gourds & Broomgrass.
