I have a couple packets of Malabar Spinach seeds (red stem) and was wondering if perhaps it's too late to plant here in Central Florida. I suppose I could try a couple of seeds and see how it goes. I'm about ready to take out one of my tomato plants -- it's reached it's peak and is now declining. so I can use that space as it has a trellis wall behind the bed.

Definitely not too late. It'll germinate and grow quickly in this heat.
