I live in California, Zone 8, and want to know what vegetables can I grow right now or prepare to grow in the next growing season? Fairly new at this.

The heat zone for CA is 9 but southern part of CA is a lot cooler than the north, and I'm in Fresno, which is central. My question is should I buy plants for a higher zone? Summer is always over 100 degrees. I had a hard time keeping plants alive. And I think that the whole state should not have the same zone. . . Thank you
