Southwest Winter Garden

One of the things we are blessed with in Arizona, the Phoenix area, is our great winter weather. Last winter it pretty much stayed in the 70s as our high and 40s for our low for three to four months. That is perfect weather for spring, so we never really had a winter. This year our lows have dipped into the 20s, the highs in the low 60s, and lots of rain. For us Phoenicians, that is winter. The weather has not stopped our veggies and plants from growing like crazy. After thinking that all our tomato plants died out because of the very hot weather last summer, they came back this winter in droves. They seemed to reseed themselves and went crazy. Our jalapeno plant did not produce anything last year but is going crazy this year. We are very excited for the growth in our garden. My husband and I planted more seeds in the empty planters and hope we have luck with them as well. We know that they needed to be planted now in order to survive the harsh summer weather. We have learned lots from the four years of trying to grow veggies in the garden. Hopefully, they will survive better. We plan to add a canopy over the plants this summer to see if that helps. I am also pleased that my herbs are sprouting too.
