Not sure how big your lot is, but if you've got some room, I'd probably try to replant at least a few native trees-- slash pine, laurel oak, live oak-- for cover if you are planning on trying to grow tender things. At my place in Loxahatchee, which was mostly cleared, I can't overstate how invaluable having a few native pines, oaks, Ficus aurea were for providing shelter from occasional cold weather and intense sun for my nursery. Plus, it's good to provide some shelter for native wildlife for insect control.
Congrats on your purchase.
