Living in the
high desert presents the gardener with challenges that can make
family and friends wonder at their sanity for continuing their
efforts. The rewards for those efforts are well worth any extra
effort. This page is dedicated to presenting hints that can help
minimise those challenges as well as information that can spur
the gardener toward new challenges. Gardening is my
passion. The purpose of this web page is to allow me to share
that passion. It is important to me that you find this information
useful. Finally I am catching up on my web page. You are welcome
to contribute articles or suggest topics.

Eastern Texas simply because didn't water them. Water rationing
means that the gardener needs to practice water conservation
techniques that desert gardeners have been developing. Those
techniques will be presented here.

Moosey's Country Garden under the updated gardening links. This

more sites for desert gardens, succulents, and cactus gardening.

I have been to Master Gardener Training in Albuquerque and I
have taken numerous biology and botany courses at University
of New Mexico. I love growing flowers and vegetables, the more
better. Practising water conservation and using plants that like
growing with sandy, alkaline soil is a
necessity. However, a bit of fudging with those conditions by
improving the soil and lowering the pH can stretch the variety
of plants that can be grown. The secret to my successful gardens
