VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: INTRODUCTION TO VEGGIE GARDENING IN SOUTH FLORIDA - VIDEO 4, SUMMER
Video three is our final workshop which focuses on growing food for yourself through our most challenging season: SUMMER! Summer is challenging because its when the weather in South Florida is at its most extreme. Its extra rainy, extra humid and extra hot which means many of the traditional veggies we are used to eating simply wont grow. But thats ok! There are many crops eaten around the world in other Tropical climates that will thrive during the summer like lemongrass, turmeric, bananas, sweet potatoes, tropical spinaches and winged beans. In this video we talk about perennial fruit tree plantings from how to design them to what plants to include, and then we visit the fields of French Farms to discuss the importance of cover cropping for the success of your veggie garden come fall. The best part about this workshop is that its FREE! Thats right, this workshop is free to watch online anytime. We are just really excited about sharing information about summer growing!
