What IS the Northern California and Central Valley area?

Post  PNG_Grandma on 1/2/2012, 12:31 am

Now that I'm your regional host for the Northern California and Central Valley areas, I figured I'd better learn more about our region. What a shock to see the regional map so nicely provided by Boffer!

On the southern end of our region we touch Chopper's area at the county lines of Monterey, Kings, and Tulare. Along our eastern side we include the counties of Fresno, Madera, Mariposa, Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador, with parts of El Dorado, Placer, Nevada and Sierra. To the north we include Plumas, Tehama, Mendocino, Lake, Glenn, Butte, Colusa, Sutter, Yuba, Yolo, Napa, Sonoma, Sacramento, Solano, Marin, Contra Costa, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Alameda, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, San Benito, and Merced.

Out of 58 counties in CA our region takes in nearly all of 38 of those counties! affraid

Yeah, yeah…I know I sound like I’m whining…especially when you look at Boffer's map and see so many other areas waaaaay bigger than ours…but hey, I’m new at this!! I'm learning!! study

Soooo, if you're gardening in any of the counties I've listed, and ya need to know something...just ask me. I'll do my best to find the right answer for you, or a few answers...or I'll try to find someone who might know someone who can do it! :scratch:

Let's get growing! happy hi

OK, sorry, I found that I'm not in "N. California", I'm in the Pacific Northwest.

welcome Bob,

Your map's not wrong. It's just that your area of the northern CA coast is more like the northwest in climate than the rest of CA.
I am in so CA, Inland Empire area but my daughter went to Humboldt State. That is a really beautiful area.

Are you new to Squarefoot gardening? Everyone here is super friendly and helpful, no matter what area we are in.

Hi Bob, if you ever need a refresher, here is a thread where you will find a map of the regional breakdown we use here on the SFG Forum.
