We learn a lot from each other - even being from different places. I'm south of Houston and am well into the summer garden. Others in the group haven't even planted yet - or are just beginning to. It's interesting hearing challenges and rewards of other gardeners in different regions!
Hi, I'm in the Cascades on the dry side of Oregon- just short of a mile high. We only have a 90 day garden season (if we're lucky- it was starting to look like the Fimbulwinter, but it's warmer this week). I spend a lot of time looking for crops and varieties that can handle less water, cooler summer temps, and/or can handle the cold.
