    Thanks for sharing your knowledge. Great info. I’m starting a garden again after about 20 plus years and have forgotten a Bunch!! I have watched many good garden channels, but could never find one for our specific area. It’s nice to re-learn what grows here & when. Thanks!

    I’ve selected a site that may have too much sun. Any recommendations for adding a little shade?

    Suggestion, use a photographers’ app to track the sun at your location to estimate the amount of sun you will get.

    Hello, Tampa beginner gardener here. I’ve an existing large garden bed box that gets full sun all day till 6pm. I am thinking nothing will survive our FL summers, unless it has shade. What grade of mesh would you suggest for a summer garden? I have seedlings of carrots, beans, green onion, cucumber …again a total neub here. Any shade advise appreciated, I know there’s different grades but no idea what needed for this zone.
