We have lived in Florida for about 5 going on 6 years and finally I have a garden. Its a flower garden. I have tried every year for a garden but the heat, drought, and the HOUNDS have always managed to kill it. This year I was determined. I got Florida friendly plants (heat and drought resistant) so thats two problems solved. I also put in a green garden fence, dog problem solved.
And of course I have a small herb garden. Mint for Mojitos, basil for everything!!, chives, and parsley.
I already have plans for a vegetable garden next summer. It is going to be so nice to just go out and pick vegetables for dinner from my own garden.
