    Hey Jake. Did you amend your soil before you planted your cactus? I want to start an edible desert plant garden on the south/west side of my house. Nothing grows there. I'm thinking maybe I should amend the ground before I put anything in there.?

    Ironwood trees keep ground temperatures, on average, 15 F cooler than sun-exposed soil temperatures which can reach 148F+ here in the Sonoran desert. Like mesquites, ironwoods, members of the legume family (peas et al.), also fix nitrogen in the soil. Additionally, because of their density and (unlike yours, so far) slow growth, the heartwood of an ironwood is actually toxic to termites leaving healthy ironwoods relatively unaffected by such pests, the wood from a desert ironwood weighs in at a whopping 66-75 lbs per cubic foot. Lastly, it is thought they can live up to 800 years, however because of their density, ring-count dating is difficult. So, trim that bad-boy back and give yourself some shade on a hot summer day.?

    Thank you for "teaching" us how to grow, find and live off the land with these amazing plants. We will be heading that way to live off the grid and needed to know more about what and how to grow a garden in AZ. We look forward to watching more of your channel!?
