We planted a garden again this year. It's our third new climate to work with and significantly different than Michigan, Kansas, or Kentucky! This year we built watering trenches and planted along the edges of the trench. It was quite a bit of work, but thankfully we had special guests to help with the labor, Jason & Maggi :) Thanks to them and my wonderful husband (as I was often tending Kaeb and not much help!) we got tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, beans, corn, and cucumbers planted. We have cabbage and more spinach ready for a fall crop. Lord willing, we hope to can and freeze our own veggies again this year and I cannot wait! Now if only we stay faithful to all the watering that will be necessary, our first desert garden will hopefully grow and produce!! I'm sure we have much to learn--such as how best to get a straight trench :)
