What Vegetables Would Grow Best in My Area?

4/23/2009 12:00:00 AM

Tags: garden, vegetables, California

I live in Pacifica, California, where it is quite foggy most of the time, with mild raining and sometimes cold winters. I just started a garden in my backyard. At this time of year, what vegetables would grow best in my area?   

We just launched a helpful new service called "What to Plant Now." Begin by choosing your area on the regional gardening map, and then choose the current month to see which vegetables you should be focusing on right now. If you still have questions, please post them in the comments section of your regional planting pages.

I am planning to purchase 5 acres of land in the Sonora or Calaveras County area, and I would like to know what kind of crops grow well there and would be likely to produce a profit. I'm open to planting anything including berries, root vegetables, nut trees, etc.
