John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ goes on a field trip to The Tomato Ladies House to show you how she is able to grow tomatoes in the desert and harvest 600 pounds a day in peak season. In addition, you will learn what else can easily grow in the Las Vegas desert environment. After watching this video you will be confident that you can grow in the Desert of Las Vegas or any desert using the right techniques.

John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ shares with you his top 8 favorite edible plants that he grew this summer with average temperatures of 100 degrees over the entire summer.
In this episode, John will take you around his backyard raised bed desert garden and share with you many fruiting crops, leafy green crops and even a tuber crop that can easily thrive in 100+ degree weather.
After watching this episode, you will learn some of the most heat tolerant vegetables and varieties you will want to grow in the hot summer or if you have high temperatures for sustained peroids of time.
While I do cover the varieties that perform well in the heat for me, this also takes into consideration my other gardening practices that are critical for your success in these extreme conditions:
1. proper watering
2. growing in high quality soil including rock dust, worm castings, compost with compost tea added. Healthier plants are more tolerant of external stressors (bugs, disease, weather, sun, etc)
A glimpse of what preserving a year’s supply of food looks like. This isn’t a comprehensive video of everything I preserved this year because taking videos takes time and I have very little of it in the summer. But I was able to capture some fun moments! I hope you enjoy this video.
