Last weekend I worked on getting the beds ready and planting for the fall garden. Tilled in a bunch of compost in the empty beds and planted a few seeds. With all the rain we have had the summer squash, cantaloupes and cukes spouted in 4 days. I started my tomatoes late so I may end up having to buy some plants, still have a little time so we'll see. Also planted
 Rattlesnake pole beans
 Carolina bell pepper
 Melrose pepper
 White Icicle radishes
 Started seed for Roselle (Florida Cranberry) to be planted outside the beds. It looked interesting in the catalog. 
 The eggplants have finally started to produce. First time trying eggplant so wasn't sure what to expect. I found a variety called Rosita from SESE, supposed to do will in Zone 10. Some of the muscadines have started ripening too! The plants are still young so there isn't a lot of fruit but I find it to be a bonus to munch on them while doing garden chores.

Wow, melons and such are the sort of thing we planted two months ago and more. What a difference a[three] zone[s] make[make]! ;D

What's muscadine?

Good luck on your radishes. I've read white icicles are very good for my zone as well as yours, and I'm going to try some daikon again this year, but in better soil.

I've been trying to follow the U of Florida's planting schedule. So far things are going well. I'm not a big fan of  radish's but these looked interesting. 
Muscadines are a native southern grape.  They have a real thick skin on the fruit but juicy sweet flesh inside. The European grapes don't do well this far south.

I didn't know about muscadines either, but I'm still a newbie at Florida gardening. Are they deciduous?

Yes they are deciduous. Tasty though. I hope next year will produce enough to make some jelly.

Sanderson; I'm not sure on that one.
There are plenty of wineries that have muscadine wines. The Lakeridge winery in Clermont Fla is a good one. We go there for there festivals & wine tasting every year. Publix supermarkets carries a couple of their wines now. If you are ever in the Orlando area the winery is worth a visit.
http://www.lakeridgewinery.com/ (shameless support) My neighbor is from S Carolina and he calls them Scuppernongs.
 There was a local guy a few miles away that had a small vineyard in his yard. He even won some awards for his wine, but he pulled up stakes for Blairsville Ga. We spent a week at the Boyscout camp in Blairsville  a few yews back. (Camp Woodruff named after the Coke CEO)Absolutely beautiful country. The scouts loved it as much as we did.

 I doubt I will ever have enough muscadines for making wine but I do like munching on them while working in the garden.

 It also gives me something else to do in the backyard.

They are great for jelly or wine, but the bulk of ours are mixed with apples to make grape-apple sauce. Makes it pretty, too.

When living in Central Texas many years ago, great-grandma Kidd made green grape pies from the unripened wild grapes (Muscadines?) growing in the Hill Country.  She picked them before the seeds had hardened, so no need to remove seeds.  Sorry, I don't remember the spices she used in the pies, though think there may have been a bit of cinnamon like apple pies.  Anyone out there with a similar memory?  Nonna

I'm hoping next year the vines will be producing enough to try some of these.
Thanks

There was an article in our local paper today about growing muscadine grapes. The skin is thicker and has a little tartness to it. I've seen kids just suck the inside from them and not chew the skin.

That's what I do too!  Then the skin goes in the compost pile.

Thanks for the Great article!
Its a blessing anytime I can eat something grown in the backyard. If these vines ever really take off I could have a abundance of fruit! So far it is just a novelty.
