    Hi Jake, I have been watching your videos as well as Shamus & John’s for about a year now. I live in Palm Springs, Calif, and we get some major heat wrenching conditions here as well. Yesterday it was 126 and it is only June. Most everyone around Coachella Valley has the typical rocks & cactus yards. I am from Oregon & miss it horribly as well as Hawaii, which has also been my inspiration. So since I am ‘ stuck ‘ here in the desert for now, I wanted to bring a little ‘ home’ to me. I have learned a lot from you three and each of you have inspired me greatly. So far, I have managed to keep my Hass alive, yes HASS ! At least so far, with shading as you do your Aravaipa, so we’ll see how that goes. Anyway, so far doing okay with typical fruits such as apricots, plums, peaches, nectarines, apples and I have 16 citrus varieties on my lot, as well as guava’s, jujube, figs, pomegranate, mango and grape vines. So I have a small typical house lot, but if your going to have a lot , strategic planting I have found is a key. I am just now in the beginning stages, but it has been a lot of work the last 3 years. I also built a cinderblock planter which is growing amazing huge raspberries, Marion berry black berries from Salem Oregon, Blueberries, strawberries, sweet potatoes and various herbs. When I tell people around here what I am growing in this heat, they cannot believe it. My goal is to help and inspire others to do the same, go vegan, organic, and self reliant. If I can even inspire one family, that is a lot. Just as you 3 have for me. The goal here is to make this CONTAGIOUS and for others to see that even in the most extremes of heat, locations, severe winds, monsoons, what have you, if you are determined, dedicated, diligent ( I love those 3 ‘ D ‘ word’s ) , you CAN make it happen. I am in the process of trying to build a water fall , smaller pond, and a stream like river that reaches across my whole yard. Finding good help is always and issue around this area as I hired someone to help me with it and they ripped me off taking off to Colorado. But I am not giving up. I am a single lady in her 50’s, taking care of a handicapped mother. So I am basically alone doing all of this. If I can do this…….ANY of you can who is reading this right can as well ! God bless you Jake, John and Shamus. I praise God for your gifts and skills He gave you which you in turn are sharing to others as He would have you to do to. PS, you are also inspiring me to get my butt back into the gym, and Karate once again !!! 😀

    Halawious!
    Great vid! I never knew about that place. My mom used to take us to Hadley's on our way to Palm Springs. I'll totally be stopping at Oasis with my family on our next trip out to AZ. Thanks for sharing!

    i know you have many past summer gardening videos. Does gardening slow during extreme heat like we are currently having? This type of heat is not too unusual for June. Can you discuss the effects of this extreme heat on specific plants? Perhaps a record heat tour?
    Thanks Jake!

    Dates might be "the best" fruit tree to plant in an ARIZONA garden…. However here in Florida, I'd pick Mango & Fig (or Sapote or Guava) trees over dates as the "best" tree to plant .. So, all just a preference based on your location I guess.. LOL.. Great video! Thanks for sharing

    OMG, NOW I KNOW WHY I'M NEVER SURE WHERE YOU GUYS LIVE. Do you BOTH,,Have MORE THAN 1 PROPERTY's?
    When reading on both of your COMMENTS threads, I've noticed other people's confusion before as well.
    Thank God! I thought I was getting pre-senile!
    You shouldn't be embarrassed
    or whatever about it, it IS, what it is. Cst'le vi. would be interesting to know more about, instead of confusing the $^^(% Out of us!

    Hey Jake, super anxious to see an update of your own date palms. Are you going to let them grow super big, or can you keep them dwarf sized for easy harvesting? Super interested if you can keep them dwarf sized because I'd love to grow some in my backyard too some day.

    You guys are awesome. Thanks for sharing this. Dates are such an exotic fruit! I wish I could grow them in a temperate climate with up to -5 celcius in winter.

    fffff
