Welcome Bridget!

I've lived in four totally different regions (New Jersey, England near London, Taiwan, and now Hawaii) where gardening was so totally different. Each move meant learning a whole new set of "rules". But I found it enjoyable. Gardening was nice wherever we lived.

This permies site is hugh with lots of info to glean through. Plus lots of people with all sorts of experience and perspectives. It should e able to help you learn o garden in Ohio.

Cheers!

Hi Bridget and welcome to permies and the USA.

Like Su Ba, I've gardened in a bunch of different climates all over the world (Somalia, Kenya, Lesotho, Taiwan, France, and different climates in the US - Wisconsin/Michigan and now Arizona) - I think the fun is learning the different approaches for each climate and seeing what new and interesting things you can do and grow in your new place.

I know there are lots of folks from Ohio on this site so they can give you some advice as "natives". Also keep in mind that this was a bad snow year for Ohio. Usually they don't get that much!

Welcome, Bridgett. Have you ever tried to drink from a fire hose? This place has that much information, and some great folks who share it. I enjoy the challenge and I hope you do as well.

Welcome Bridgett. Not sure what part of Ohio you are from, but I am from neighboring PA, in the NW corner. Snow...it would help if it would decide to stay away for the rest of the spring. Ah, but those surprise snow events are all a part of the fun of our region. Glad to see that you joined the group. There is a wealth of information on the site and so many extremely helpful people if you cannot find an answer first.
