    Thanks for these Las Vegas shows I really appreciate it. Helps a lot in my garden. Wouldn't mind visiting Chris's garden. I'm surprised he doesn't grow okra. They do really well here in Henderson/LV. The Armenian cucumbers are awesome. I've pickled the bigger ones. Very good taste. Peppers do well for me too. I hate that we can't grow big tomatoes. The smaller ones do well but have that grape texture. Watermelon do well also but I'm looking for smaller ones. I've tried growing shisho and eggplant but can't for some reason. People laugh at my desert garden but I enjoy learning and spending time in it. Glad Chris is showing that it's possible. Would be nice to see his garden in the spring time.

    Say John I live in the high desert (Victorville, Ca), zone 8B -9A, my issue is moths that eat the plants and springtails, I don't know how to deal with them except to do a planter off the ground and nets, besides that I'm quite discouraged by my plants getting eaten by bugs and birds.

    Hi John I had a Stroke just over5 years ago which left me with several disabilities so keeping up an edible garden is not easy. It’d be great if you could come and help out with establishing an urban farm down here in Adelaide , South Australia with this 58 year old man.

    If you want to open compost in a dry environment, I suggest you put ur pile in the shade & cover it with a tarp after it's watered to slow evaporation. Also, I put kitchen waste in the freezer then add it frozen to the pile, it will be wetter & mushier & break down quickly, even in a drier pile. I live in Texas, so probably not quite as dry as desert living.
