My boys are Riley who is 12 and Konnor is 11! Our story is this…I’m originally from Arkansas, relocated to Az when I was 15, a young Mom at just 19 plus add some stumbling blocks in life and at 25 I was 100 lbs overweight and feeling pretty hopeless! I began a journey of self discovery then to BECOME a new happier me. I had the Lapband Surgery in 2010 and over 5 years lost 75 lbs and gained many new physical hobbies (running, hiking, tennis, cycling, etc) and fell in love with MYSELF! I have then spent the last 2 years studying spirituality and what that means to me and with the addition of yoga and more veggies have lost another 10 lbs, to a total of 85 lbs over the last 7 years. Constant, gradual, realistic improvements to myself has always been my goal! During all of that, I became a Realtor and in 2015 we bought an 8 acre farm in southern Arizona where I began gardening for the 1st time and then studying permaculture! I became (and remain) obsessed with plant life and […]

    We have been having 105 to 112 degree days and my garden is struggling even with shade cloth. Hang in there. Maybe our tomatoes will produce more fruit as it gets cooler.

    I would thin out the corn more they will grow bigger and produce better.

  • In that kind of heat you will need to water more than twice a day! Soaking is the answer not spray water but to slowly seep to bottom of container! Large plants in container gardening require extra care to flourish. Feed regularly with proper watering technique. Nutrients are quickly lost in containers as they leach out! In summer I water early morning and late afternoons here in CT and we get nowhere near that kind of heat! I had a great harvest this year because I followed those rules.

    Its been brutal down here this week, 112 yesterday. We had a 5 minute rain shower today (I stood out in it =))and 45 minutes of blowing dust but it did cool it down to 98! Only about a couple more weeks and we should drop down to the double digits! I tried to grow tomatoes in one of those topsy turvy hangers and got 3 little tiny tommy toes off a full size tomato plant, I think i under watered mine.

    I just took a 3 week gardening course (one class a week) at Herbalicous in downtown Casa Grande. I highly recommend you take her next one! Emily runs it and she taught me so much about desert gardening. One of the things she provides is a laminated guide (so you can take it out into your garden without it getting ruined) of leaves. You hold your plant's leaves up to it, find the one it looks like, and it will tell you what your plant needs. And that's just one of the many things she gives out. Her next class is on the 6th and she has the info on her Facebook page. I'm so happy I did it! https://www.facebook.com/HerbaliciousAz/

    I'm in Ohio and got lazy and didn't water for a week. Even tho the weather was cooler. My plants took a hit! Containers need more water than other gardens because they dry up faster. Keep it wet and they'll bounce back…

  • The percent of water in the human body is 60%. The percent of water in vegetables is 95%. Humans perspire and plants transpire. Plants are outside 24/7 in that heat. When the leaves turn brown and fall off it's because they have died from lack of water. When your soaker hose is running on top, most of the water is evaporating and not getting to the roots. And instead of the roots growing downward like they are supposed to, they are trying to grow upward to reach what little bit of water they can get. Try putting a tomato pot in a bowl of water and keep the bowl full so it can soak it up. I noticed today that Lowes had some fresh tomato plants. Most of mine are done producing. I think I'll go back and get a couple. ';D
