    I’m about to plant my first desert garden. My first garden was along the Gulf Coast in 1979. That’s a long tiem in between. I’m in the Chihuahuan Desert in Texas @ ~4500′. Raised bed,10′ x 10′ , with 2 pickup loads of hauled-in soil and a small amount of goat manure from a friend’s farm mixed in. I’m? getting a late start, but we’ve had freezing weather twice this April, which I accidentally avoided by being too busy to get the seeds planted. Thanks for sharing your garden.
