Few sites lend much support to folks in the blazing' Southwest. We grow veggies all year round, but have a hard time getting help for our challenging conditions. Live in Mesa, Arizona, the Phoenix metro area. I've gardened many years on different properties, now find myself with limited space comprising multiple mini gardens, maybe a total of 200 square ft. Soil is rough, summer plants need daily watering, only watermelon survives the intense summer, Jun-MidSept.
