learn what i have learned about Growing food organically in a supremely hot and dry, low desert climate
I can also help those in climates less hot than phoenix, arizona's 105-118ish-degree summers.
Most of what I have grown has been potted, but at my last home, I also had a large raised bed for my vegetable / edible garden. And while I grow a number of newer cultivars called hybrids (NEVER GMOs), my preference is heirlooms for the stability they offer.
For those new to gardening, the best time to start growing your own food was several years ago, but now also works. Even if you start with just one plant, you can do this!
MORE PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEO OF MY ORGANIC VEGETABLE / EDIBLE GARDEN
I have been gardening organically in Phoenix, Arizona (Zone 9b) for three years, and below are images from my organic vegetable/edible gardens. I have grown over 100 varieties--with more varieties being trialed now--of vegetables, fruit, culinary herbs, grains, seeds, and 'medicinal herbs' (that's what they're called, but I believe that God designed *all* of his foods to create healthy bodies and that there's a spiritual component to health).

A WALK THROUGH MY GARDEN on april 17, 2021
I PROVIDE PHONE / TEXT + E-MAIL CONSULTING FOR HELPING YOU GROW YOUR OWN ORGANIC VEGETABLE / EDIBLE GARDEN,
IN-PERSON CONSULTING MAY BE AVAILABLE IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA UPON INQUIRY, BUT PHOTOGRAPHS MAY PREVENT THE NEED.
(Please note that consulting is presently only available to those in the United States.)
A number of gardening consulting services begin with a roughly hour-long, in-person consultation of about $150 and then cost $50+ hourly after that. One of my goals is to help more people than can be helped with traditional consulting services.
As I have spent hundreds of hours researching answers to my questions and learning through trial and error, it is also a goal to save my customers much time, money, and effort!
My experience is with growing food organically--mostly potted and in a raised bed--in a supremely hot and dry, low desert climate (Zone 9B), but I can also help those in climates less hot than Phoenix, Arizona's 105-118ish-degree summers.
a little help never hurts! (OPTION 1)
For those with only a little need for one-on-one help, $90 reserves up to (*) 1 hour of phone, text, and/or e-mail consulting per month (or even just for one month).
Though set up as a subscription, you can purchase help for only one month by cancelling before renewal if you don't need more. You will receive an automated reminder by e-mail before the renewal date.
If you have not yet begun gardening, this option can help you decide whether you want to begin. Gardening requires many purchases and a good amount of time especially in the beginning and when problems arise periodically--e.g. with pests, disease, and storms that can require treatment and additional garden cleanup--and knowing some of what's ahead can help you decide the best course of action.
(* See the information below these three options.)
About I have been gardening organically in Phoenix for three years and now provide phone/text + e-mail consulting for helping you grow your own organic vegetable/edible garden in my area or one that is similar (e.g., California, Texas, Nevada, New Mexico).
My complimentary blog for customers has much content (200+ posts) for helping to reduce the amount of consulting time that is needed. One blog post (always found at the top of the private blog for easy access) contains consulting ideas/topics for those who don't already have questions ready. In-person consulting may be available in Phoenix, Arizona upon inquiry, but photographs may prevent the need.
Regarding hours, in general I offer the hours of 9 a.m. - 8 p.m., Monday through Sunday, but I can sometimes be flexible (later or earlier) and especially if consulting by e-mail or text.
*Applicable to All Consulting Options 1) I will let you contact me when you're ready with questions each month, but please know that minutes don't accrue if you decide to forego reaching out for help in any given month.
2) Please don't everyone wait until the last day or even week of the month to submit your questions! 3) Monthly subscriptions are non-refundable; so, when your consulting need ends, please cancel through the link provided by e-mail before your subscription renews. This implies that there is a one-month minimum.
