I just asked this basic question of Patti W. in Omak. so yes please, anyone
that knows the answer please jump in. Sounds like there must be two lists. I
suppose we should all use the USDA zones, as these are probably more widely
used. How about overseas, does the USDA cover these also? Since much of our
culture tips are based often on zones, it is important to have the right one!
Julie, Do you have that internet address for USDA zones handy? If not I can
search for it.
