Hey, it might be useful to have lists of where people are from. Different regions experience different climates, different obstacles, different challenges to overcome. This list might also be useful to organize a get-together some place, some time in the future. Who knows the possibilities? Please leave a comment with your name, location, and zone to get added to the list or private message me. Any additional information you wish to provide is welcome!

This list is for the hot and humid Southeastern United States, where summer rains are frequent and hurricanes abound!

I am really in South Central, right on the boarder of Oklahoma. Southern edge of Tornado Valley. It gets hot, rain infrequently, but does rain... so..

If it's a more arid place you might consider the southwest thread. What are your humidity levels like Rebecca?

I added you to the list anyway but just want to make sure you're in the group that best satisfies your needs

It get fairly humid but doesn't stay that way. We typically run about 50-60% humidity in the summer and a little higher in the Spring and Fall

Help everyone! My name is Eric Busby. I live in Clinton, MS, which is zone 8a, but my yard usually is more like an 8b. I’ve been growing figs for a couple of years and have about 50 varieties in pots till I can go in ground after I get a fence. Also, I hate deer.
