Lots of blueberries in Florida too, (at least here in the Northwest part), but the season for them is long over.

Blueberries

There's also a huge field of blueberries across from us in Wauchula. Until I started RVing I didn't realize that blueberries has such a wide range. Unfortunately we're usually gone before the harvest begins around here.

What we do miss is good ripe, winter squash. We can grow summer squash, but not the winter varieties; the grocery stores never seem to have a good selection and the ones they do have are usually green. Root crops are somewhat lacking too, parsnips are looked upon as an exotic food.

I'd agree on the root crops, and winter squash. Even in autumn, it's hard to find US grown turban, acorn or butternut squash. What gives? And parsnips, when I find them, are usually in the organic section, at $2 or more a pound...
Oh well, we who live here must pay for the sunshine somehow... With great prices on other produce, I'll live with the price of parsnips.
And I never have to shovel the heat out of my driveway.

Boy, with all these people living in or staying in FL, we should see lots of fiberglass trailers in FL when we come next week.

We will join the parade of eggs to Florida for our fifteenth winter in the Sunshine State. See you in the Keys, fellow eggers. We'll be at Curry Hammock and Bahia Honda for most of Feb & March...then meander north to Flagler for the last two weeks of March. If you see our little green Trill, stop by for a visit....Cheers...Alistair & Inge in The Road Toad

Bahai Honda was the spot where I decided to become an RVer.

What is your tow vehicle in that picture?

Thank you

my "TV"???

Norm, as you might have guessed, the avatar was staged...that is my youngest brother's Smart Car- strategically positioned where my '06 Toyota Sienna usually goes. I always wanted a Mercedes until I drove John's 3cylinder diesel with a 7 speed (an ironic reference here!!) auto transmission.
I'm pretty sure that it would not withstand a hitch, far less have the ooomph to tow anything. 60 mpg is great, but the little Swatch is fairly limited. Made a fun photo though!
The Sienna takes us to Florida (middle seats removed) with 8 feet of cargo area filled with Rubbermaid bins. Enough room for bike gear, snorkel stuff, satellite dish, clothing bins, guitar, lounger, camp chairs...etc etc. Add to that the tandem bike on the rear of the trailer, and two 12' kayaks on the Sienna roof. We don't exactly travel light for our 3 months
We're on our way in 21 big sleeps!..and hoping for clear roads on I-75

Hi: Ray N...I've never met a "Parsnip" I really liked. Best try was french cut, lightly battered, and deep fried. My fav. veggie in Florida is sweet potato fries.
