After some time off this summer in Connecticut (hard life, I know) I have begun to make detailed lists for my trip back to and establishment in Virginia for the school year. Having done some gardening this summer (blueberries, lavender, mint, the basics) I learned that Connecticut resides in zone 6 (mostly) which lend itself to the adequate development of plants such as apples, corn, blueberries and cherries, among others. Virginia, which resides in hardiness zone 7 allows for many of the same plants to be grown however, I wanted to make sure that I would generally "eat local" when I arrived in Virginia. You can find which hardiness zone you live in here. Furthermore, below is a map for quick reference.
