Hello! This is my first real season gardening here in the low desert of Phoenix AZ, other than some patio herbs and a few tomatoes in years past. We just bought our first house, so finally have some space to start gardening.

I decided to go the SFG route, and have mostly been growing from seeds that I obtained from Native Seeds - a local seed group that supports seed collection and saving of native plants. Since they are native, they have a higher heat tolerance. Something I thought would be beneficial during our 110+ summer weather.

My garden goals include expanding to more boxes (!) and getting onto a planting rotation schedule where I can be harvesting something fresh year-round. Yep, in theory that is possible here in Phoenix! At least so I've read. We shall see...

Anyways, happy to join the forum. I expect I will learn lots from you all!

Here's a peak at my garden in early June this year!

Hi Kristi,   Welcome to the Forum from Central California!  glad you\'re here  You should be able to garden year around.  Native Seed plants in the summer and generic cool plants in the winter.  I garden year around.  The Northern folks like seeing photos of our Winter gardens. Very Happy

Please feel free to hope over to the Northern California threads. We have a lot in common.

Hi Kristi!

We have had some members with awesome gardens in your neighborhood in the past.  I remember one especially under shade cloth, but his pictures are gone now. You might find some good encouragement and ideas reading threads in your regional section https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/f17-southwestern-deserts
