Portland, I guess being a zone 8 and not sure about Chehalis and
perhaps S.NH having a 5/6 Zone with my microclime then the only
hope is a chill hour James Beard "Crawford" that's been made available
for this zone probably doesn't exist..... Cest la vie.
(Keep my eye open though!)
Many thanks Betty.
Best of growing,

James Beard grew up in the area of Portland, Oregon, and other reports I
have heard came from as far north as Chehalis, Washington. I don't know if
there would be an all-over zone rating, as altitude and distance from water
can create different microclimates in gardens only a few miles apart--my
friends in a nearby hilly area are consistently 4 to 6 degrees colder than
me at nights.
