Living on a little under three acres in a "residential" area outlying Naples. I've lived here over 20 years, but still learning to grow in Florida sand, Florida heat and humidity, Florida droughts and occasional freezes and flooding!
A lot of work, and I've made a lot of mistakes, but I'm gradually expanding and improving various planting areas.
