Hi,

I'm writing from the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills near Yosemite National Park. My husband and I have 6 acres and we're starting our first garden. My husband has built me one 4X4 box so far, I'm going with two to start to see how it works out. We went with 12 inch deep redwood boxes due to a blog I read, the writer said she switched to 12 inch deep boxes due to the heat in her area and she felt like the soil didn't get dried out as fast. We have some pretty hot 90-100+ days here so I need all the help I can get.

We are also planning to build a fence around our garden to keep out the wildlife. The deer eat us out of house and home. Every nice plant I have bought has ended up in a chicken wire enclosure to keep the deer out so our yard isn't exactly a landscaped dream yard. I guess I need to learn a little something about planting things the deer don't like.

I have some questions but I'll post them in the appropriate thread. I look forward to posting pictures of my garden soon. I enjoy seeing everyone's gardens in the gallery, lot's of inspiration there!

Well just wanted to say hi.

I'm personally curious as to how you progress. My ultimate goal is to move my family to Southern Nevada sometime in the not-so-distant (next 10 years or so)future...

Having lived in the High Desert myself, I know it's not uncommon to see temps around 100'F at midnight... so, I'm curious as to every nuance of how you (and/or others) manage things in a desert climate... please, do share... and pictures would be nice too!!! Very Happy

Hi Jeff,

When I say Sierra Nevada Mountains I mean the foothills, with Oak trees and pines.

Hello from the Sierra Nevada Foothills P4280210

This is our driveway last spring and the lupine flowers that were blooming. Of course in summer it all turns brown. We're about an hour and 15 mins from Fresno, CA in the Central Valley of California, which gets to about 105 or so in the summer.

I'm hoping for more 90 degree days than 100+ degree days but we've seen 102 in August.
