I'd like to start a veggie garden in southwest Florida. It's right on the zone 9/10 line. It's warm well into December most of the time. We're moving at the end of this month, so I'd like to start with plants in the ground in July? Or should I wait until later in the summer to avoid burning? I remember that years ago I had luck having two growing seasons, but I don't recall exactly when I planted and harvested each time.

I'm confused, your moving in a month and you want to start
your garden now? Nothing is going to be ready to harvest
before you move, why not wait and start a garden in the
new place

Yes, that's what I mean. I'll move first, then start a garden.

In Florida, many veggies are actually planted in the fall or early spring because the summer is too hot. Here's a link to UF's guide, table 3 gives planting times for different veggies, broken down by FL region (south, central, north).
