What to Plant in October and November?
October/November is the beginning of the gardening season here in Florida. Think of it like Springtime up North. This is the time to dust off all your gardening tools, buy some new seeds and plants, and get digging in the dirt. Maybe you spent your summer making a Lasagna Garden Bed, or maybe you have a raised bed or potted garden space that you use each year. No matter what your space looks like, NOW IS THE TIME for making it into a productive garden. Nature is on your side when you plant at the right time, and nature will help you out with cooler nights and less bugs and plant diseases.
October/November is a good time to plant:
Kale, Collards, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Arugula, Lettuce, Mustard Greens, Bok Choy, Swiss Chard, Beets, Carrots, Radishes, Green Onions, Chives, Oregano, Thyme, Rosemary, Cilantro, Dill, Parsley, Strawberries, flowers like marigolds, zinnias, nasturtiums, calendula
If you are planting in a protected area (protected from frosts) you can plant tomatoes, peppers, beans, and sunflowers in October as well.

We are so pleased to announce that one of our farm family members is starting her own small farm adventure. Katie Harper is the smiling face who greets our community at Farmers Market. It has been our privilege to learn and grow with her for several years. Now she is branching out on her own with The Sprout Stand
NSB native, Elizabeth Dannemiller Merachnik, owns and operates Green Flamingo Organics. After gardening at Organic Farms across the country through WWOOF USA, Liz has come back to her home town to help bring organic produce to her community.
We are dedicated to making sure that all people in our community have the right to organic produce. In 2020 we started the Giving Garden, a garden space where 100% of the produce goes to our local food bank (Gifts of Love in Edgewater). If you want to get involved- contact us.
