Vegetable gardening in AZ in summer???
I have some experience in gardening and I'm new to AZ. I started square foot gardening with raised garden beds last Feb. I'm still trying to adjust to this climate and just when I think everything needs water then it looks like I've overwatered. My garden produced some, not as much as I had hoped. But now it is August and even though everything is still alive, there is less flowering and not any producing. I'm thinking the heat is just way too intense. I put an umbrella over my strawberries and now they are just dying completely.
I'm hoping that I will be able to have a good fall crop with this climate. But I think August is still way to hot to start planting. I would appreciate any shared experiences and advice for gardening in AZ.
