Marijuana Seeds Florida: Tips & Information
It may be famous for oranges, but Florida offers a lot more than just citrus fruit. Known as the peninsula state, 90% of the state occupies the peninsula that separates the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. The population of Florida was estimated at 21,477,737 in 2019, and those who live in the Sunshine state appreciate the impressive and beautiful landscapes. Florida was discovered in 1531 by Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León, who is responsible for its name, first calling it La Florida, which is The Flower in Spanish. After its discovery, it became the first known location of any European colonies in the United States. It was used as a strategic location for many European countries to battle for the rights to the Americas and the Caribbean.
Florida itself is filled with diversity due to the topography of most of the state being only 100 feet above sea level. The rise and fall of the ocean, in addition to its beating upon it, has formed and eroded the sand and limestone that covers Florida. It is hard to notice the differences on a map, but there are seven physiographic regions. The Lake Okeechobee–Everglades basin, the coastal lowlands, the Kissimmee lowlands, the central highlands, the western highlands, the Marianna lowlands, and the Tallahassee hills make up these regions. If you consider that almost three-quarters of Florida is filled with swamps that are protected from the ocean by beautiful sandy beaches, you can understand why most of the cities are located beachside.
The Tallahassee Hills and the Wester highlands are ribboned with streams and are the prime growing zones in Florida. The state is well known for growing tangy and sweet citrus fruits, but other crops from Florida include sugarcane, snap beans, tomatoes, and potatoes. There is no need for a greenhouse to grow great crops in this climate. It is plenty hot enough.
Oddly enough, the climate in Florida is split into two different zones. It is tropical south of Lake Okeechobee and subtropical north of there. However, the summers are pretty similar throughout the state. Rain is the common theme during the summer months, with between 40 and 62 inches falling in those months, depending on the area. Winter is predominantly dry, and frost and snow can be experienced as far south in the state as Miami. Both have been known to damage crops creating havoc for farmers.
We cannot talk about Florida weather without mentioning hurricane season which goes from June to November. Most of the storms tend to develop in September. The most notable hurricane was in 1928, which killed thousands. The Okeechobee Hurricane smashed the coast of Florida. It was one of the deadliest hurricanes in the recorded history of the North Atlantic basin, and the third deadliest hurricane in the US.
The plant life is diverse here, with several different varieties of trees and plants. The animals that occupy the area include at least 100 mammal species, including pumas. This North American cougar is where the Florida Panthers of the NHL get their name from. The Florida Everglades is home to both alligators and crocodiles. A bird watcher’s paradise, the state is home to 400 plus species of birds.
If you are looking for things to do, you have a number of choices in Florida. Walt Disney World is one of the most famous attractions but not the only one. There is also Magic kingdom, with its many rides to partake in. Universal Studios is not far off, and it is open 24 hours a day. While you are there, you might as well take a stroll down Diagon or go into Hogsmeade. If theme parks are not your thing, you can also go to the Everglades National park for a boat ride or Dry Tortugas National Park for some swimming or snorkeling
You might not expect it, but there are winter sporting events in Florida state. We are, of course, speaking about the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Florida Panthers. Only the Tampa Bay Lightning have won a Stanley Cup, which was in 2004, but the Panthers have at least made the NHL playoffs.
