Default Growing seasons in St. Petersburg

What are the growing seasons here in the St. Petersburg area of Florida.
Is there a stop growing for the months of June, July, August?
My hydroponic garden is in a screened in area with no control of summer temp.or humidity. Thanks

Yes it is standard practice to close down the hottest months of the year and use that time to clean
your equipment and make any changes that need to be made.
Tomatoes produce the largest yields when day temperatures are in the range of 80 to 85
degrees F, and when night temperatures remain between 62 and 72 degrees F.
I can grow tomatoes up to august by using 70 percent shade cloth.
