Florida gardening has its own set of challenges. Just to get started, the University of Florida's Agriculture Department has tons of information. Check https://solutionsforyourlife.ufl.edu/hot_topics/lawn_and_garden/veggie_gardening.html for a starting point and on that same site check their Florida Gardening Guide; https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/vh021
Check with your county agriculture extension agent's office for some start-up help. In some counties, the Master Gardener program helps other gardeners with advice and, sometimes, with a free soil ph test. Soil testing is also available via the UF IFAS Lab for $3 for just ph test and lime recommendation, and $7 total for additional test of P, K, Ca, and Mg.
Summer planting season here in north west Florida starts in ~3-4 weeks. South Florida is likely already planting for summer. If you do tomatoes, don't delay too far into the season because once night temperatures get into the '70s tomato plants will not set fruit. Which stop new tomato production in June here in my area.
While building up the sandy Florida soil with organics is always good, chemical fertilizers will help you bring in some vegetables now, and I find no shame in using them.
