I am a city gardner in zone 6. We have dramatic temp swings in this area with cold winters, and hot summers. Love to grow my own fruit and veggies

Zinnias are a great companion for vegetables in the garden @petitelake Pollinators love them, heirloom varieties are great. Purchase once, and you can save seeds for life each season!!
