We got alot of fun & free food out of this contest last year. There is rumored plantings already going on in WunderGardens across the land. No worries about any later start contest isn't over til everyone gets a killing frost or sometime next February (which every comes 1st). All you do is fill either a planter container or a hole in the ground with compostable trash, plant in the middle a young tomato plant (note the date), share pictures of it with us on Weather Underground & water most days when it doesn't rain. Best, trashiest..the winners kind of name themselves..

Here is our Best in Show from last year.. SBKaren's beauty...

When to plant what & how in Florida. (scroll down about 2/3rds)

North FL last month to plant bush & pole beans, canalopes, collards, corn, cucumber, pepper, pumpkin, summer squash, tomatoes. Turnips & watermelon. Also plant Lima Beans, eggplant, mustard, southern peas, sweet potatoes

In Central FL as the seasons change to hot, April is the last month to plant Bush, pole & lima beans, as well as cantaloupes. Also plant okra, southern peas, sweet potatoes.
