I'm a long-time DFW resident & HG listener...I've been in SoCal for over a year now....YOU CAN GROW ANYTHING HERE!!!, but we dump a lot of chemical ferts & pesticides onto our lawns & gardens. Its kinda surprising because urban runoff warnings are posted where streams enter the ocean, and there is a lot of public awareness about dumping stuff in storm drains. I guess its just lack of knowledge of the alternatives, and lack of organic suppliers. One neighbor at a time I suppose.
Enjoy my (early) Sunday mornings listening on the internet
