March is our last cool month in Central Florida and with spring beginning later in the month, this is the perfect time to grow some vegetables. Our latest favorite veggie to grow is Baby Bok Choy. This is an amazing plant to grow from seed and it only takes 2 months to grow, shorter if you pick the baby leaves. Baby Bok Choy is perfect for container gardening as the plant will grow a max of 5” tall with white stems and glossy, dark green, tender leaves. While these tasty leaves are still small you can use them in a salad. Once the plant gets bigger cook them up in a stir fry or steam them in broth and serve as a veggie or add them to soup.
I already have my seeds and planted our Baby Bok Choy a week ago. Lee and I love this time of the year while the air is refreshing with warm sunshine. Springtime is the perfect time of the year to visit us and see all that Central Florida offers. Our lifestyle is relaxed and filled with beautiful surroundings, our homes are modern and highly livable, our job market is flourishing, and our economy is strong. The latest statistics state that nearly 900 people move to Florida each day for many reasons. We are not only a great state to retire in but a great state to work in and a great state to raise a family in. Florida has no personal income tax, our property taxes are reasonable and our weather is stunning. Call us and we will be happy to show you around the neighborhood and introduce you to the good life in Solivita and our surrounding communities.
