Join us this summer at the library to learn more about and borrow from the Headquarters Branch Seed Library. Located on the 3rd floor near our magazines, we offer a wide variety of starter seeds and information on how to start your very own garden. While the summer may be too hot to plant most crops, here is a list of some crops that thrive best in Florida's sizzling summer heat: okra, sweet potatoes, southern peas, sunflowers, yard long beans, green beans, hot peppers, zucchini, cucumber, eggplant, malabar spinach, corn and melons.
