Quote from: aitm on May 12, 2023, 10:46:53 AMGetting ready to put mine "down" for the summer. Tried growing brussel sprouts this year, was going good till we got hammered by a hail storm two weeks ago, cleared everything right to the ground. So too late to replant in central fl. Now it's time to Solarize the gardens and start looking for next years soil amendments, last year production was not great and his years was worse, so being in mostly sand, I have to add lots of amendments every two years to get some soils eventually that will sustain itself. Broccoli went gangbuster this year and green bean always produce well but some other veggies struggle.

To those of you new to gardening don't put any "according to the experts" non-vegetative material such as scrap Meats or dairy products as they tend to chase away worms, all almighty compost makers. I have no worms and may try adding some, but the yearly "solarizing" which is nothing more than covering the gardens with plastic to heat up the soils to kill bugs and weed seeds may also drive out the good bugs and worms. Florida has, well, where I live, shity soils for veggie growing, but I'm still learning, and by the time I die, I may, know what I am doing.
