I haven't seen this mentioned in the threads so far. My husband and I are thinking of moving to the central Oregon coast area in a few years for retirement to get out of the smog and heat of So. Calif. (please don't hate us). I just wondered if anyone can tell me how the weather affects gardens. I am an avid tomato grower and would really miss my summer crop.

Oh good a nice subject! Well the tomatoes won't like so well on the coast as it does not get hot.
I'd suggest looking at cities on the coast in the city-data pages. Check out the amount off sun and tempertures. If you pick somewhere inland then your tomatoes would grow better.
Lots of other things grow here but it's not the best climate for growing vegies.

I am also an gardner, not the best but I do have a rather nice of assortment of flowers on my property, and some garden items as well, I am also prolly going to be moving to Oregon, I say maybe cause we have a few offers in the works in DE, OR and VA! Overall, I really want to experience the west coast and we have a few locations out this way to consider. We just got an interest on a offer in Albany, OR...this am in fact.

I am now researching this area as well here...I am actually looking forward to growing some new and interesting plants that you do not find on the east side of the states! I am looking into a historic home as well on Lincolon st in Albany, if we should go that route, or a home like it, its very nice and under 200,000! Of course it could be catch too, but anyhow nice to meet you, and no one can blame you for wanting to leave Callie for Oregon, esp since your older now, I know I would!

Do you get more sun and warmer temps for your plants and garden down further in Oregon, like in Corvallis or Albany? Looking into both since the job offer would be in Albany, Or.

Have a great day all!

Default gardening

I live 14 miles inland from the coast and I have great tomato's,eggplant and peppers.You cannot grow the hot weather veggies on the coast unless you have them in a greenhouse-the temps are just too mild and the wind is bad also.I have dianthus and alyssium blooming outside and my wild wave petunia against the house survived the very mild winter and has a bloom.The soil is very rich where I am at and it is great to be a gardener but I have to live a little inland.
