Outdoor Growth Calendar for Northern/Central California

This will be my first season growing so I'm trying to get a good growth guide calendar that can lay out how many weeks plants in this region generally stay in the vegetative growth cycle and how long they generally flower. Does anyone have some information about this? I want to make sure not to start feeding the flowering nutrients too early (considering that they help induce flowering) so I can get the best vegetative growth out of the plants first. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I'm several hours north of you but I'll try and help the best I can. I plant in early June and harvest in October. If you're growing in Ocean Forest that hasn't been amended you will need to start feeding nutrients a couple weeks in, these are "veg" nutes and will not induce early flowering, or you can build your own soil and never have to worry about bottled nutes...good luck!!
ETA - (disclaimer)I don't know anything about nor have I ever used FF nutes. Santa Cruz is a big county so you want to pay attention to weather as to when you should plant outside...the SC mountains are def different than the coast. Also, don't forget about pest PREVENTION avoid those fuckers all together is easier than fighting them once they've shown up.

With organics you can mix all the nutrients into the soil and never have to worry about veg and flowering nutrients. Its amazing how simple growing can be when you mix the food right into the soil and let the plant take what it wants. It's when we try to take control and force feed our plants that problems really start happening.
