    I've been trying to find a reliable and easy to see growing zone map for Canada and I finally found one. It's interactive and even has a place at the bottom of the page to search for specific locations. Perhaps I'm the only person who needs this but here is the link just in case.

    Up until now I was working under the assumption that we were 4a but now I see we are 5a. That opens up a whole new list of possibilities for our garden. Yea!

    Thanks for posting this! By far the best map I've seen on zones.
