Wetlands in Florida
The weather in Florida is usually warm and doesn’t often freeze in winter; however, there are some freezing temperatures in some areas. In early 1900, while the frosts could damage a farmer's crop, they moved further south in Florida that is called wetlands.
Even though the climate in the wetlands is not likely to freeze, it is not proper for farming because it is an area where water covers the soil or near the surface of it for a massive part of a year. Then, the farmers had to transform wetlands into a farming land where they could grow oranges. They drain the water from the land and divert the water sources. As a result, the mild temperature in the wetlands has become more susceptible to freeze lately.
