West Caribbean blob is a bit a tenacious one & worthy to watch. I expect at least rain in South & central Fl from it. Models are favoring south Fl, the trend is moving north & i agree. Kyle pulling north is dragging the protective cool & dry more north then expected, this should leave centraL & perhaps even NFL more open for some impact from this as well.

Garden~
From the moon calender of the Farmer's Almanac
September:

25-30 A most barren period, best for killing plant pests or doing chores around the farm.

October 2008
1-2 Favorable days for planting beans, peas, squash, sweet corn, tomatoes and other above ground crops in southern Florida, Texas and California. Fine for sowing grains, hay and forage crops. Plant flowers.

3-4 Good days for planting above ground crops and leafy vegetables such as lettuce, cabbage, kale and celery, where climate is suitable. Start seedbeds

5-7 Do clearing and plowing, but no planting.

8-9 Plant tomatoes, peas, beans and other above ground crops, indoors in the north, outdoors in lower south.

10-11 Poor planting days. Kill poison ivy, weeds, clear land, but do no planting.

Garden~

Found a trick with the corn I put in after Fay. When they are a few weeks old & that bug comes to burrow down the middle eating & chewing~ put a few inch piece of pennyroyal in the middle of the stalk. Always had great luck with it for a corn tea but this is quicker. Planted some brussel sprounts, winter & acorn squash. Cucumbers were good, but they are over. Stressed out & ate up, missed some pollination with the storms keeping the bees home, but not bad considering yield & weather conditions.

Time to Plant. Let all the hurricane moisture germinate your seeds. FSU garden page is excellent source for what seeds to plant in which months for if you live in North, central or South FL.

Garden~

The ponys are rearing up on their hindlegs & reaching over the fence to a high bamboo treless that shades the kids area, to eat the blooms & young fruit off my passion fruit!!.

Time to Plant. Let all the hurricane moisture germinate your seeds. FSU garden page is excellent source for what seeds to plant in which months for if you live in North, central or South FL.
