My Pacific Northwest Gardening Tour-Zone 8b

👋 Welcome to my Pacific Northwest Gardening Tour in Zone 8b at the Happy Apple Core Homestead. Zone 8b gardening is an especially great climate for growing vegetables, berries, and herbs.❣️ We encourage you to like, comment, and subscribe to our channel.

5:58 Getting ready to harvest Broccoli seeds
7:03 Why you should plant your corn in at least rows of four
8:24 My challenge removing pesky Voles

The PNW – Pacific Northwest is a stunning area to live with so much variety in vegetation and planting a homesteading garden is especially easy or beginners. This is a rain belt area, mixed with moderate year-round temperatures.

This video was taken in July 2021, just after the record-shattering unprecedented🔥 112+ degree weather.🔥 We NEVER get weather like that, the average temperature for this area, this time of year is mid 70’s to low 80’s and on rare occasions during the thick of summer we might get a day or two in the low 90’s.

As the plants grow and the garden changes I’ll post update videos for you all to see.

Thank you for watching my video and please don’t forget to subscribe and let me know if you have any questions about how I preserve the food I grow!

PS, if any of you have a better method of trapping voles without poison, I want to hear from YOU!

  12. oregonsvirginia on April 28, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Yes! I’m glad I found a pnw gardener! I love watching the Australian guy, but 8b can’t grow bananas like he does. 😆

    New subscriber and new content creator. Love the channel. Thanks for the video. I’m up in Bellingham.

  14. Troy Stewart on April 28, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Very nice thank you for sharing! Question: I just joined a community garden in Tacoma, so we should also be in Zone 8b. I am a novice gardener, about 3 years in…I would like to know do you have a standard planting schedule you follow for our zone?

  15. Jamie Lowe on April 28, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    If you float your cranberries they can only be used for juice ☺️

  16. Gene McCarthy on April 28, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Out of curiosity what is your elevation? Are you in zone 8b or 8a?

  17. Jac89 on April 28, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    This was such a lovely stroll through your garden, thank you so much! I live in the PNW and your garden really showcases the natural vibrant, lush plantlife:)
    Is there a source for pnw gardening that you used or could recommend for a beginner? I have a sizable yard I would much rather grow a garden in than grass!

  18. Melody Barry on April 28, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    That heat last summer was BRUTAL!

  19. Madison Hadden on April 28, 2022 at 7:25 pm

  20. Kristina Lynn on April 28, 2022 at 7:26 pm

  21. doughnutguy82 on April 28, 2022 at 7:29 pm
