im in zone 9b in lakeland florida and i have about 500sqft or so to grow a small garden to feed myself fresh veggies. its changing seasons finally so i can start planting cooler crops to grow these next months. what plants can i start now and in the next few months to get the absolute most use out of the space i have. i have very sandy soil and im working on getting a few yards of compost delivered soon. i also have a irrigation system developed ,is it better to use drip or a spray system? i have a small huglekultur bed that im going to grow bush beans in to break everything up and use the space for something to fix the bed with nitrogen. any crops that will grow tall and stuff that grows short? and what to plant after each crop? there are 3 regular beds and the huglekultur to space everything out. Any help would be very helpful!!

Hi, Andrew

My suggestion would be to plant things that you and your family like to eat.

for my family that would be lettuce, spinach, squash, onions, and garlic.

What do you like to eat?
