Tomatoes-lots of varieties
Small hardy sweet corn
Strawberry popcorn corn
Kale
Spinach
Lettuce
Beets
Radishes
Chard
Night blooming flowers
more extra large sunflowers
pumpkins
watermelons
carrots
scarlet runner beans
morning glories already in
hollyhocks taking off on their own already weeding out
desert sunflowers (not sure of their real name but they grow like weeds here) already weeding out
strawberries...already doing well by the fish ponds
high desert wildflower mix should be popping out of the ground any minute

Dead mouse yesterday while cleaning under some plants SIGH always makes me hantavirus and plague nervous when I see one so I treat it like toxic waste don't even give it a proper burial jsut into the trash it goes---in case you did not know yes we have those things here still and yes people still get sick from them it is the feces and fleas of the mice--or it can be no telling but not taking any chances as our house backs up to a large open space across the road....

what I want to try next BERRIES...blueberries, blackberries...YUMMMM...will go out and get pics and upload them later must go water this AM!

and knowing the desert only half will come up but never know what might grow here till you try....

All you people who have REAL SOIL in their yards quit sniggering at my desert photos this is real farming no soil, sand only, high winds, hot hot hot desert summer, lots of blowing sand, unique watering needs this is what it takes to be a REAL backyard gardener LOL LOL
