My Square Foot Layout: Here are a few photos that I took while I was digging out the garden using my 4’ x 4’ grid. I made two of these grids that bolt together to form a 4’ x 8’ platform that sits on two sawhorses for c...

I am recently transplanted to the Catskills from Las Vegas, NV. I'm looking forward to a great gardening season. My Brother and I will be sharing a large plot in the Community Garden in Walton, NY and my Parents have let me take over a 14'x14' raised bed at their home in Hamden, NY. I will also have several containers with herbs. The gardens will be 10 miles apart and very different.
For the last fifteen years, I was living in the middle of the Mojave Desert, in Phoenix, AZ and then in Las Vegas, NV. It took me a few years and a lot of mistakes to get used to gardening out there. My first attempts resulted in disaster due to the excessive heat, soil that has more in common with concrete than compost, and my own ignorance. I finally had success in 2012 with container gardening. You can see some of my video blogs from Las Vegas here on GardenTenders.
I plan on posting more videos and photos this year as I get things started.
-- No GMO's for me. I'll grow my own.

The heat finally claimed the last of my garden this past week. It’s been brutal this summer, and when I decided to take a seven day camping and fishing trip in Northern Nevada and Utah with my oldest daughter, it was pretty much a death sen...
Hi fellow GardenTenders, This video is from May 2, 2012 with some still photos taken on May 2, 3, & 4, 2012. With this update, I’m finally all caught up editing the footage that I shot before I found GardenTenters.com (via Lumberjock...
This is my last update in the month of April. The growth has been great. I’ve had some failures, but the overall experience has been wonderful. It feels good just to walk outside and see all of this growing right outside my front door. T...
