We are known for our orange groves but Florida grows so many fruits and vegetables that end up being shipped all over the country and the world.
I did a google search and got this info from the Fresh from Florida website HERE.
“In 2013 Florida had 48,000 commercial farms, using a total of 9.55 million acres; Florida ranked second in the U.S. for value of vegetable production; first in production value for oranges, fresh market tomatoes, watermelons, grapefruit, fresh market snap beans, fresh market cucumbers and squash; second in the production of greenhouse and nursery products, bell peppers, strawberries, fresh market sweet corn, spring potatoes, tangerines and avocados; 12th in beef cows; and accounts for 63 percent of total U.S. citrus production. Florida ranks eighth in agricultural exports with over $4 billion.”
We see lots of fields of peanuts and melons in our area as well as all kinds of fruits.
The watermelons look ready to pick!
I like this sign!
And the website HERE has a chart to see what is in season each month of the year.
Of course you don’t think of hills here in Florida either but we have a few.
You say you get car sick?
Move over and sit by the window!
And enjoy the view!
There’s a Swallowtail Kite in the center of the photo below but it’s hard to see.
