Monday morning planting...

My traditional Monday morning moment in my garden. A couple of weeks ago I bought two green plastic window boxes (three-foot by six-inches by six-inches) on clearance at Lowes for three dollars. This morning in one of them I planted:
  • French Breakfast Radish
  • Tokyo Cross Turnips
  • A mix of Adelaide and Little Finger Carrots
It's a very cool and damp day after a week of near-record highs last week. Cucumbers are growing at a tremendous rate, covered in yellow blossoms, and forming cucumbers. Broc is getting bigger and bigger (now more than two feet wide), but STILL no sign of heads.

Hi, I am new to blogging, but found your blog through a search for plantings in sunny Florida. Is there a way for me to ask you a gardening question or two? perhaps via email?

Ask away, here in the comments. If you're new to gardening in Florida & have questions, the GardenWeb Florida forum is an amazing resource:

I post there under the name an_ill-mannered_ache (an anagram of my full name).
