Too late to plant veggies?
I live in southwest Florida, on the west coast.
I've been debating planting some vegetables from seed.
The vegetables I'm considering planting are cool weather for the most part: cabbage, romaine lettuce, and possibly beets.
I know it's almost April now. Is it too late to plant warm or cool weather vegetables?
By warm weather veggies I mean.....
*Squash (zucchini, pumpkin, summer squash....)
*Melons (cantaloupe, watermelon)
By cool weather veggies I mean.....
*Sugar snap peas
Essentially what I'm asking is, is it too late to plant warm or cool weather veggies? I've been debating planting a few veggies using the method of container gardening.
However if it's going to be too hot for the veggies to cope regardless of what variety I plant, that they're going to up and die on me, I see it as a waste of my time, efforts, energy, and money.
Here is a link that gives a chart for when to plant what in Florida based upon what part of Florida you live in. Essentially I just need recommendations of whether I should go ahead with starting to plant stuff, or hold off and wait until it's a more suitable environment for stuff to grow and survive.
As stated previously, here are the links:
the first link is exclusively for Florida. The 2nd link is much more general and gives general planting guidelines for the Southern United States, and not exclusively Florida.
