Hi there. I'm new to this forum. I'm also new to veggie gardening, and have jumped in with both feet, but lacking in knowledge! I am in zone 9, in southern Cal. Currently, I have started dark green squash, yellow crookneck, brussel sprouts, carrots, radish, and pak choy (as of late August). All have sprouted recently. I do have questions, so I will post on main forum page. Looking forward to getting to know you via this site! And thank you, in advance, for your help.
