Many people have troubles growing veggies in Florida. Vegetable gardening in the Sunshine state is in fact much different than up north but there are still some things that thrive here and anyone can grow them. I keep trying and failing myself but I'll keep you posted about my successes. :)
Growing spaghetti squash is one of those things that probably anyone can do. Shaded spot and fertile, well drained soil should do - along with moderate watering. The plant has gorgeous, bright yellow blooms in the morning. They close by noon but they are so showy (photo below) that I think I'd grow the plant even if I didn't like the fruit.
