Farmer's Market Produce
I don't know if you have seen me talk
whine about how jealous I am during the summer when I see/read about all of you visiting your local Farmer's Markets.
You see down here in Florida our Farmer's Market season runs from October to April.
So when most of you are knee deep in snow I am visiting some of my favorite SW Florida Farmer's Markets.
It's the same for backyard gardening and the Florida fresh vegetable growers.
In the summer, it is so hot and rainy here that most vegetable and fruit plants can't survive.
But, during the winter we usually have the perfect weather for gardening and commercial vegetable growing.
We do have a few vegetables and fruits that are in season during the summer months like watermelon and corn, but the big Florida produce growing season is during the winter months.
So when you are knee deep in snow don't be surprised when I start talking about my trips to the Farmer's Markets.
