Now, here in south Florida, the growing season for most vegies are in the winter months, but I looked up a south Florida planting guide for vegies, and found two things! I can grow Yard-long green beans (they actually grow about 28 inches long), and summer squash! I am excited. I rarely try to grow anything in the summer, because it is so blasted hot, but because of my blogger friend, Bobbie Lynn over at Why I Love To Garden, I found out that the summer squash grows as a bush (not vining)!!! I am so happy! I think I will try a few bushes! I really want to grow the beans too, but need to put them on about a 6 ft trellis at least...which means I will have to construct something! Hmmmmm.....I really want to!

A big THANK YOU TO BOBBIE LYNN for giving me the info regarding the squash!!!
You can see a pic of her bush in the link above, and here is a pic of the yard-long beans...the red and green varieties ...don't they look like a boatload of fun!
