I live in central FL. And all my garden has died or is dieing from the heat. Had some good luck and bad luck with it. This was my frist year. Ive been told Fl has two growing seasons. If that is true when does the second one begin? I like tomatoes and cukes.

Here's a publication from Florida State that lists the best veggies and the best planting dates. You can download a copy for future reference:
