Wish We Had Acres

Location:  Phoenix, AZ

Day Job:  Naturopathic Medical Student

The Digs:  Backyard, Community Garden, Front yard

Crops:  Basil, Bell Peppers, Bok-choy, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Chile Peppers, Collards, Corn, Cucumbers, Figs, Garlic, Green beans, Kale, Lavender, Lemons, Lettuce, Melons, Mint, Oranges, Oregano, Peas, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Rosemary, Spinach, Squash, Strawberries, Sugar Snap Peas, Thyme, Tomatoes, Turnips

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I believe food is medicine and the better quality food I can produce and share with my community the happier and healthier my small spot in the world will be. If I could get at least every other neighbor to be inspired to grow their own food (even if it's only on their windowsill). I also want to reduce my carbon foot print by growing food no further than 100 steps from my door.

    Unfortunately these are not figs I grew but ones that were grown on a farm at Reevis Mountain school in Roosevelt az

    They are beautiful aren't they!

    I am planning to plant 2 fig trees on our new lot...very exciting...for those in az go to RSI GROWERS they grow there trees in the arizona climate so the trees are better adapted to the heat...

    Great job. I'll keep in mind what you are growing as it will help me in Arizona Climate. I'm going to be preparing beds in January. Also trying to decide which fruit tree I want to plant. Figs look great and they do well here but they do need a large space. Any suggestions you might have are welcome. I'm in West Mesa by the 202 Red Mountain Freeway. So it's fairly hot. Again, nice job and great inspiration for me.
