You've gotten a really late start - or a very early start. Veggies won't grow during the summer months, with the exception of lima beans and okra! You have two growing seasons in Florida. One beginning in September and one beginning in March or April. That's when you can grow all kinds of tasty veggies. Here's an address for a publication that you can dowload for future reference. It give the planting dates of all the commonly grown veggies so you can plan your garden:
