Howdy! We have a pretty healthy disrespect for too many boundaries, lol. Most of us are in the 5-6 gardening zones, but we live in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky & West Virginia, with a few folks chiming in from Florida, Arizona, Minnesota. Why don't you go to this thread
and introduce yourself and join in. Most days there will be more than one post to that thread, aka the Coffee House thread. My name is Pat, and I live in Cincinnati. I am an untutored gardener, and it shows, usually!
I live in Barberton OH where the Tuscarawas river (tributary) is only about 15' wide. Welcome!
