high desert az growing anything! lol
hi all! ive not gardened for many years, and have moved from beautiful washington state, to desolate desert, duncan arizona, also known as Drunkan Duncan. you get the picture! lol
anyway we are at about 3900 ft, I want to grow some citrus trees, everyone says they dont grow here, BUT at about another 1000 ft higher, or more, there is ONE, just ONE, huge old grapefruit tree! big yummy juicy grapfruits.
it is the ONLY grapefruit, or citrus tree in the whole town of Clifton AZ.
even in safford az, about 1400 lower nonone grows them, its more of a pecan tree kind of place.
does anyone know what type of tree, or things i could do to get positive results?
I bought a little lemon tree (dwarf) today, with many fragrent blossoms on them. oh, and a necterine tree.
I would love to introuce some rasberry starts, and am thinking of having some blackberry starts shipped to me from a friendin washington state?
i just cant get any local info or find much online either!
any info would be appreciated.
I have hated this move here, its been 6 yrs, and Ive been fighting it, kicking and screaming, we are here for my dear husbands arthritis.
its of town of about 600 people, and 1/2 of them are in the local bars, living up to the town name of drunkin duncan.lol
nothing to do here, Im trying to find something to do that i love, and wont be a waste of time and money.
The nearest town is 100 miles round trip.
so i cant buy anything here in town, we have 2 gas stations, old joes, hildas meat market, and 3 bars.
please HELP!!!! lololo
