I live in California where we have pretty warm weather. Actually in wine country on the central coast. I built a garden made of herbs. I have a beautiful artichoke plant and can't wait to eat it. I'm a beginner, but my grandfather always had a beautiful garden that we would run through as kids and play hide-n-seek. It was before computers and cell phones and video games. Although I'm addicted to all of those. lol
