The Pacific Northwest! This region includes most of Oregon and Washington state as well as the northern "tip" of California.
According to Mother Earth News, the top 10 crops for the Pacific Northwest are: Pole snap beans, Snow/snap beans, Potato, Garlic, Cherry Tomato, Summer Squash, Chard (so easy to grow), Lettuce, Onion and Carrot.
If you've been following the "Region-Specific Gardening" series, February is the time to get you seeds planted! So NOW is the time to plan for that garden you've always wanted or have been thinking about expanding.

My advice to anyone getting started:
-Plant ONLY Heirloom Seeds. Find out why...
-Plant Basil!!! It's easy.
-More easy varieties are: lettuce, beets, radish, turnips and borage.
-Try Peat Pellets for seed-starting made easy.
-Plant more seeds than you think you'll need. Stuff happens!
-Take notes or keep a log of what works, what didn't work, questions and comments. Or blog about it!
If you are looking for additional help for natural or organic pest control check out "Natural and Organic Pest Control." I use Neem Oil for powdery mildew when I just can't get rid of it any other way.
Consider Companion Planting for natural pest control and healthy veggies.
