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.

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...
Hi Gardentenders! I haven’t posted here in a while because I was in the middle of moving and had to break down all my gardens. I have relocated from Las Vegas, NV (zone 9) to a small town in the Catskill Mountains in Upstate New York (zo...
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...
