    I live in Mesa too! Glad that I found your website. I am getting ready to grow food this year. I don't have a green thumb but I am going to try.

  • Linda Schmidt

    Thank you so much for making these videos!!! Our climate is so different than other areas and we need your local knowledge. Look forward to more!

    Hello, thank you so much for your videos! This is my first season ever to grow anything, and I find your information very helpful! I live in Tucson, so our climate is almost the exact same. I’m wondering if you ever do consultations, either in person or via zoom? I have some planning questions.

    These videos are incredibly helpful for those of us living in some extreme challenging climates and soils. The videos are such a treat I'm beginning to get more excited to see a new one posted than when I see there's another episode of the British "Gardener's World" to watch. "Gardener's World" is a delight for those who love green and growing things, but the soil and climate conditions most presenters hail from are rarely to be found for those of us in low desert. I live in the African Sahel, so while I"m not truly low-desert (thank goodness, no caliche, though), Growing in the Garden is much more relevant to my gardening experience. There are NO extensive gardening videos to help those of us gardening in the Sahel. South Africa has some videos, but that climate is vastly different from the Sahel. Keep up the good work! Truly a delight and welcome aide.

    Thank you so much for this real-time tips on what to plant and plan for. Very helpful. I do have one question, which may sound silly, but I always hear gardeners talking about "adding" compost and "adding mulch" but I never hear any issues about taking anything out of the garden beds. How does that work? Do you ever have to take old soil out of the gardens to make room for new soil and compost?

    This is very helpful, thank you for putting these videos together! I'm a new gardener who got a late start this spring, and it's confusing seeing the 'second summer' in the UofA extension guide but not mentioned anywhere else online. So many online guides say it's too hot to plant anything in July or August here, but the extension guide suggests squash, pepper, and tomato in July and August.

    This was so helpful! Thank you so much for posting these videos. My garden is looking so much better since I started watching your videos. You're awesome.
