    I’m in Scottsdale. Have 2 Dave Owens books. 🙂 I had NO IDEA 2-3 hours of
    watering was necessary!!!! It seems like a lot! But wait – shouldn’t I
    water daily? I water 2 x’s a day. Also, it seems when i water like that I
    get less aphids?? Sooo many questions – sorry. 🙂 It does make sense about
    strong roots though. There’s a gorgeous edible garden in this month’s
    Sunset magazine & it inspired me.

    @Furnish123PHX Hey, thanks a lot 🙂 It’s been fun to see how much you can
    really get growing almost anywhere. You have a garden now? If not, I hope
    it’s made you want to try one. Let me know if you need any help with plant
    advice since it looks like you live here in AZ,I can help you with certain
    plants that thrive here

    best of luck 🙂 just remember to make the change gradually or you’ll stress
    out your plants. Let us all know how things progress!

    I love that magazine! I understand how it can inspire 🙂 but yeah, when you
    deep water infrequently you end up letting it get wet, dry out somewhat
    then get another drink. By watering so often you create shallow roots and
    attract more insects because of the constant water in the soil. in hos
    green book under March he talks about changing the irrigation clock. But
    you what…if it works stay with it lol thats what I say, I’d hate to be
    the cause of any damage in your garden esp. in our summers 🙂

    Think that’s great that you can make a such a great garden in a small
    space. Inspiring!

    I’m just starting to plan my garden. I’m up here in Gilbert. How do the
    plants do in this narrow area between your house and the fence?

    @49tacobell Thanks for watching! This is our first year as well. Up until I
    made these raised beds, we only grew a few peppers for salsa. I have quite
    a few updated videos uploaded which you might find interesting. I look
    forward to wacthing how your garden is growing…be warned, gardening is
    very addictive 🙂

    Nice !

    @49tacobell We’ve done the Home Depot run many times ourselves 🙂 I wish I
    had the room for a great almond tree! I was thinking about planting an
    apple tree here, “anna” is a good type for us here in Arizona since it has
    very low chill hours. Good luck with your critter war and try looking up
    some organic recipes for keeping them away…blended hot peppers made into
    a spray can help. Also, try going organic as much as possible, synthetic
    fertilizers are no good for your soil/plants.

    I transplanted our little plants from the seedlings we started indoors.
    They don’t look so good, so we’re going to plan “B” heading to Home Depot
    and get a few mature plants. I can also see I planted them too close
    together. Yes, I can imagine this will be addicting! we’ve planted an
    orange, apple and almond tree. Our furry little bunny friends ate part of
    the leaves last night on the almond tree. I’ve delcared war with them! 🙂
    Happy gardening and I’ll check out your other videos.

    @krazy45cat Thank you! It’s been a fun project.

  • 49tacobell 6 years ago

    looking forward to a update video. how many years have you’ve been
    gardening? this is our first year and we’re keeping our fingers crossed!

    I have a pretty good sized garden, they often die out in summer though as I
    can’t afford as much water as I’d like. I water 20 min, 2 times a day. I’d
    like to plant MORE for eating AND beauty. But…I’m worried the plants
    won’t sustain through the summer/winter. Even if they don’t bear fruit & go
    dormant, I’d just like to SEE them when i walk outside! 🙂 Any tips to a
    year round garden? I was hoping to use LESS raised beds this time, to make
    them part of the landscape.

  • ArizonaAdventures 6 years ago

    that’s cool that you want more plants 🙂 and you can, but you need to
    adjust your watering. I’m guessing you live in AZ here and if it’s near phx
    like me then you should be deep watering for a long time but less often. so
    say like for established plants you would water in the summer 2x per week
    for 2-3 hours each watering. This lets the roots dive down for water and
    keeps them stronger…check out the two books by dave owens at the library
    he’s the garden guy from ch 3 and knows a ton

    @TimSAZ well first off congrats on starting the garden, your gonna have a
    lot of fun! As far as location goes, my gardens are doing really well. One
    is more for full sun and the other gets more winter veggies, however, as
    you can see from my videos I grow just about everything in both gardens to
    see what does better. Watch a few of my gardne vids and you tell me how
    well things grow in my yard 🙂 It’s all location, make sure you try and get
    at least 4-5 hours of full sun.

  • tkmaz 6 years ago

    Thanks for replying so fast! 🙂 I’m going to give it a go – I might a well
    try before the heat is on & I’m stuck in a schedule I don’t feel I can get
    out of! Wish me luck!!
