    No state income tax
    Year-round growing
    Ample rainfall
    NO snow shoveling, ever
    Abundant wildlife, including deer, turkey, boar
    I’m way up north near the GA border. I get a frost maybe a few times each year. Some years with NO frost. During the cool season I grow brassicas and frost tolerant crops. There’s always something going on in the garden.
