Plants for dry soil: 

Comment by Patricia on August 27, 2013 at 1:22pm

Yes Idaho, too much heat, too long days, & the drainage here is is impossible to keep up with. Despite hand watering several times a day along with the sprinkling regulations of alternating days, things just can't be kept wet enough. Our summers can get very hot, but usually there are enough days where we get rain here & there to keep things a bit moist anyway. Other summers, there is just nothing to help unless it stays a little cooler to slow down the evaporation. The greenhouse retains the humidity which does make a lot of difference, & my husband added a fan to keep the circulation going, as well as opening windows at each end.

I agree.  The zucchini kid is cute.  The pollination video is good.  I've seen that fascinating twirling bat following the bug before somewhere.

Joan, thank you for posting the video link.  I"ll embed it here.  The filmed bats pollinating cacti, and the hummingbirds, were incredible.

What a cute zucchini kid!

Patricia if I had ambition I would try to build a greenhouse like yours.  It would provide lots of added gardening options.

Patricia, why is your garden "fried"?  Too much heat and not enough water?

Box gardening without boxes

Here is an interesting way to plot out a garden without building boxes. Water could be supplied to each area, the soil prepared with Lasagna method of soil preparation:

Each year is different for snow. We've even had several green Decembers, which used to be unheard of! We can get very mild winters, to very cold winters, but our temps don't go as low as they did 30-40 years ago. We get years with 6 or 8 feet of snow, to almost nothing at times. Thankfully it's dry so clearing isn't too bad & my husband finally invested in a blower when I got after him for shoveling by hand. With his bad heart he shouldn't be doing it & I can only do so much myself. Even the neighbors, who seem to have ''adopted'' us, help out & give him ''what for'' if he does something he shouldn't....it's hilarious!
