What can I grow from seeds now in Florida?

My garden area is partially shaded and I successfully grew radishes earlier this year but not much else survived. I'm thinking of pumpkins (can I just stick the seeds right out there?) and would like to try grape tomatoes since I have a container from the store in my fridge, and know they are supposed to produce in partial shade. Any others for June?

You can grow any of the heat loving veggies! Tomatoes, okra, squashes, melons etc. You have to consider your space, amount of water and conversely how to conserve water and prevent evaporation (heavy mulch or SWC) and of course the humidity (molds fungus moisture loving diseases) and the pest population! When you say "Not much else survived" then you need a plan for survival! June, July, and August are the three months that are the toughest due to heat and humidity!
