Tried swamp cabbage yet? (Heart of palm)
What about dollar weed tubers?
Palm fronds break down quick but make good shade cloth around planted food trees.
For more local ideas, connect with greene dean of eatheweeds fame. He is in central florida and does foraging / native plant id classes around the area.

Haven't tried swamp cabbage yet, cause I read that harvesting kills it and I haven't had the heart to harvest it, nor dollar weed root, haven't learned to identify it yet, but now I will. Thanks for the idea on using palm fronds for shade cloth, genius idea....hadn't thought of it, but even this early in the year the sun is radioactive, so I will be trying that. Green Dean has been a huge resource for learning the Flora, also I enjoy David the good and Pete kanaris, and growables.com. those have been indispensable resources of knowledge. Thanks for the compliment.... Are you in Florida too?
