I am new to any forum, this is the first one I joined. I have been gardening for about 5-6 years, I grow heirloom tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, green and yellow wax beans, zucchini, peppers, spaghetti squash and herbs. This year I planted asparagus. I have 7 chickens and they love my swiss chard. I live in Southern California, zone 9A. Never could determine in what Sunset zone I am. I was looking for remedies for powdery mildew on my swiss chard, that is how I found your forum. This year I am hoping to plant winter vegetables. Now you know everything about me.
