Florida doesn’t usually see much spring. We tend to go from not terribly hot to disgustingly hot overnight. This year we’ve actually had some very pleasant days mixed in, with temperatures staying in the 60s and 70s. We even had a low in the 40s this past week. We don’t worry about frost too much down here when we start planting our gardens. I got mine started a little over a week ago: two different tomatoes, zucchini, and petite sweet pepper, along with some new lavender, basil, and rosemary. I wanted a squash plant too, but I haven’t been able to find one yet. I love planting the seedlings and watching them grow.
Walking out on the patio is a delight these days. My mums are blooming, the lemon tree is thriving in its new pot with blossoms covering the branches, my daisies are going crazy, and there is still a cool enough breeze to sit down and soak it all in. I’m enjoying it while I can. Before long I will break a sweat the second I step outside, but at least I will be harvesting my fresh veggies.
