Spring Garden

Many people think the only thing we grow in Arizona is cactus. But this big lemon balm comes back every year with no help from me. The only thing I do is harvest the fragrant leaves and make delicious tea.
On the right is a photo of tennie tiny grapes on the vine.These come back every year with only a few watering's in the early summer and fall. I hope I get some this year before the curved-billed thrasher eats them all.
I also have tiny tomato and basil plants inside the house. We usually get a freeze right before Easter so I am not taking any chances. Beans, cucumbers and summer squash are planted after April 15th. So are you planting a victory garden this year?
