The Potted Desert View

The Potted Desert View
This blog is for you, the native or transplanted desert dweller. Our harsh and varied desert climates continually present a challenge for gardeners. Those of you who have moved from a colder climate such as the mid-west or New England, you have most likely tried to find container gardening information that tells you how to grow the kind of garden like you had 'back home.'

Potted Gardens - without abundant monsoons

Our monsoon flow has been pretty minimal over the last 10 days. This means our plants are showing signs of a struggle in the heat again. Be sure to give them some TLC and water aplenty during our continued high heat.

Do not fall into a sense of complacency though - be prepared for a monsoon storm. Batten down the hatches as I expect that we will see one this week. NO - I am not a meteorologist so don't go running off to the bank on that comment. :) It just seems that we are due for a storm and in tracking our local meteorologists, the systems are setting themselves up for one.

Have a great day and take time to enjoy the early mornings before the heat hits.
