How to Grow Veggies in the Desert?

Desert Gardening
by Lowe's Creative Ideas / Lowe’s Desert region gardening expert Scott Calhoun

Growing fresh, organic produce for your family in your backyard is one of the most rewarding aspects of gardening. It is also surprisingly easy — much simpler than you might think — in desert climates. In the little 4x8-ft plot my wife and I tend, we supply nearly all the produce for our small family from November to April. Below I discuss how to start your veggie garden, and a few strategies for dealing with desert conditions.

Choose a Sunny Spot
It might seem counterintuitive where we have such a surfeit of sunshine, but even here, veggie gardens need pretty much all-day sun. A spot where the winter (southern) sun shines for at least 6 hours is good. A little late-afternoon shade (an eastern exposure) also works well, as long as the site gets the winter sun. Avoid planting a veggie garden under a tree or next to a tall evergreen hedge.
