In preparation for my upcoming permaculture design project near Phoenix, Arizona, I visited my friend Diane to learn about how she manages to grow a nice vegetable garden in Phoenix, despite the challenging climate and conditions. In addition to the veggie garden, Diane and her husband have created a beautiful oasis in their backyard with many desert appropriate trees, shrubs, and cacti. This environment attracts a great number of local wildlife, including many small birds, and has even become a favorite hunting ground for several birds of prey. The music used in the video is my own, which you can find at I am currently looking for volunteers to help with the Permaculture Bike Park project, and stay or live in the Ant Village.

    That weed is lamb's quarter. really nutritious and somewhat tasty plant related to amaranth.

    That weed in the hoop house looks a bit like Lamb's Quarters to me. Got a lot of it farming in New York's Hudson Valley and always tried to harvest some rather than pulling it as a weed. I would treat it pretty similar to spinach and mix it in salads or sautee it with other veggies, it's really tasty if the leaves aren't too mature 🙂
