Year Round Backyard Veggie Garden

We are thinking about doing a year round veggie garden, what plants to plant when? I live in Orlando, Florida.

In fall, go with cool season veggies like the cole crops -- broccoli, turnips, radishes etc -- and greens like lettuce, chard, spinach in winter. And onions, carrots,  and snap peas. YOu plant this stuff when the days begin to cool off.  The heat loving stuff you plant just as you normally would, after any chance of frost has passed. Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and squash, beans, corn, etc.  As you remove the cool season stuff (after harvest or after the plants bolt), it makes room for the warm season stuff.
