Beginner farmer, gardener etc. in Penngrove; 46 miles north of San Francisco. We're trying to resurrect an old working farm (2 acres) that previously had some fruit and nut trees (just persimmon, pineapple guava, walnuts left)...hoping to plant, graft, propagate dozens of species...starting with basics: apple, plum, cherry, peach, almond (if they can handle adobe soil...) and try our hand with kiwi, avocado, mango, asian pear in the coming years.

We're listed Zone 8 or maybe 8a but finding out the hard way that our microclimate is colder, windier etc. than maps indicate.

Thanks for this educational forum!

Welcome Hongisto. I've never heard of a zone 8b climate this close to San Francisco, so i am sure you are in a much warmer spot than that. Glad to have you onboard. Looking forward to hearing about your farm.
