    Hi John. I just started watching your videos but didn't know you live in Vegas.
    Would you sell any of your vegetables etc. ? I'd love to buy from you. I'm big on organic eating.

    Wow I'm glad I finally found you! I've been searching for hot weather Gardener to help me along the way especially since my vegas patio garden is between 2 two story buildings and it gets even hotter down here in the middle.
    I have eight of the large Stone outside pots from McCormick & Schmick's when they remodeled. The contractor gave them all to me and brought them to my house because I was the one that had to do all the gardening there previously and he knew that the kind of meant a lot to me. (I was the hostess actually)
    So in my tiny little patio- 16 x 20 maybe, I have eight of them Across The Back Fence and that's how I'm attempting to grow my garden as well as stack containers in between them on top. However this year has been hotter and the summer did not prove to be successful although the plants are alive and survived I did not get much fruit if any after the Heat hit so now they're actually starting to come back and flower even with the high heat stress that they went through.
    I am hand watering that's the only way I can do it and actually I need to take some of the peppers out cuz I found that they don't have the proper drainage and the peppers are sitting in a swamp!!! Growing tho not big
    Thank you for sharing your experience because I appreciate all the help you can give us. Still looking for aluminet reflective covering that will fit my whole patio and not just pieced in.

    What about partial shade maybe the shade cloth during the hottest time of the day and full sun in the afternoon when the sun hits from the West side before sunset in the summer time.

    I love how he keeps saying he recommends it AT THIS TIME. It’s cool, people should understand that as time progresses or needs change and products change.

    How you going to be in Florida and not stop by my sad home food Forest? Actually you need to visit Bryce in Inverness. He has an impressive banana collection of 50 varieties not to mention the rest of his yard. Fifty varieties of bananas in Inverness! That’s pretty far north to have a yard that looks like a Costa Rica jungle. He also has the worlds best mulberries. Just ask Pete about them.
