Thanks to all and happy gardening!
I have a seed offer going right now, for Self Addressed Stamped Envelope. All are growing right now in South Florida, and doing well. The plant out timing is the most important thing, and due to Florida's nematodes and the terrible root knots they cause with subsequent malnutrition, many of us garden in containers. I use Earthboxes because they are completely closed off at the bottom, and are self watering.
