Green Desert

Location:  Las Vegas, NV

Day Job:  Management Analyst

The Digs:  Backyard, Containers, Front yard, Other

Crops:  Almonds, Basil, Bell Peppers, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Chile Peppers, Corn, Cucumbers, Jalepeno Peppers, Lettuce, Melons, Oregano, Peaches, Pears, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Rosemary, Squash, Thyme, Tomatoes, eggplant, beans, sunflowers, chard, onions, onions and more onions, beets, radishes

Animals:  Dogs, kids, grandkids and thousands of hard-working red wriggler worms.

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  Farming in the urban desert is challenging, it's fun and it tastes much better than picked-green, truck-shipped, over-priced, store-bought industro-food. If you can grow in these conditions, you can grow anywhere. It's good work, healthy exercise, a great source of Vitamin D and for some reason it amazed people that you can grow your own food. It's also fun to share with my kids and grandkids. I detail my adventures in a silly blog called stealthfarmer.blogspot.com Check it out and post a comment.

    Thanks for your comment. It's true that we haven't used all the front lawn for growing yet. That's because my 89-year-old mother sits in her chair & looks out the front window. She insists on having a lawn. As soon as it becomes possible, my sister & I plan on taking out the grass & creating more planting beds and walkways, but no grass. The grass costs us allot in water fees. I know you understand, being in the Vegas area.

    Hi! I wanted to thank you for stopping by my page and the congrads. Are those cucumbers in your kid's laps? If so, what kind? Are they tasty? Never seen them before. I'm impressed with anyone who can grow great food in a desert!! Have a nice gardening Day!

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my city farmer page. The structures in the yard are part of a fort I'm building for my grandson due back today from visiting his Dad in California for the month of July. I'll have to get some pictures posted of the finished high in the sky fort.
