How To Grow Jalapenos (Zone 9 – Central Florida)

Do you like spicy food? If so, jalapenos are a MUST in your garden! I’m a hot food wimp, but my husband judges how good a food tastes based on how spicy it is. I always joke that as long as I cut up a fresh jalapeno and sprinkle it on his plate – seeds and all […]

March Garden Update (Zone 9 – Central Florida)

What a month! Instead of diving into my spring garden as I promised in last month’s update, we decided to put our house up on the market – and it sold in a weekend. But just because we’re moving doesn’t mean that I didn’t grow great things in my garden this month! 🙂 Spinach I’m […]

How To Grow Kale (Zone 9 – Central Florida)

For that reason, I’ve created my new monthly garden update. Ta-da! Welcome to the first edition for the […]

How to Grow Sweet Potatoes (Central Florida – Zone 9)

Growing sweet potatoes was the highlight of my fall garden! They were the easiest plant to grow – yes, even easier than as radishes and mixed greens – and they produced TONS of root vegetables to eat. I have another batch of sweet potatoes growing right now and I plan on continuing sweet potatoes until they won’t grow anymore. How […]
