Summer gardens can be tricky to maintain in SWFL due to the rain and intense heat. So, we reached out to our friends at ECHO Farm for some advice on what to grow.
During the month of July, focus on planting traditional crops like jalapenos, Lagos spinach and sweet potatoes. As we move into August, you can begin to plant vegetables like eggplant, bell peppers and squash.
Due to the heat and rain, ECHO Farm is focusing on tropical fruit and perennial vegetables. You can check out and buy supplies and plants at ECHO Farm to begin your summer garden.
