Slam Dunk Easy Desert Gardening
This is the third of three books by retired Master Gardener Leslie Doyle. Leslie is able to grow anything she wants to eat in her desert garden; Beans, corn, cucumbers, eggplants, huge melons, okra, peanuts, peppers, potatoes, squash, huge tomatoes and this is only some of the warm season veggies – the cool season veggie list is more than twice as long. She grows onions, carrots, turnips, beets and more – and so can you.
She also gives you her garden soil recipe – and her planting guide for all the veggies she grows is in a handy fold-out in the back of the book. Planting various veggies during a specific window of time enables Leslie to harvest food every day of the year. You can, too.
She also talks about low chill fruit trees, pruning, irrigation, compost, watering, mulching, fertilizing, raised beds, etc., and the sun. This book will explain away the gardening myths, rumors and wrong information that causes many gardeners to fail.
No fluff or filler pages in this book. It is just what a desert gardener needs to be successful the first time out of the gate. A quick read, to the point and fun to read.
