New guy

Hello everyone,
This is my first post here as a member. I am a native of Ohio but I have been out west for the last 16yrs. I am somewhat familiar with gardening but in dire need of an education on how to do things the desert dweller's way. I grew up helping my grandmother in her garden in Ohio and we always had a great harvest...but every single trick that I have tried from back home, wont work in the least not for long term anyways. My soil starts out good but it quickly compacts and things just go down hill from there. Recently, I have begun to gather materials for a raised bed so I hope that will help out some.

I am sure that there must be some sort of "stickies" that I can browse through to save you all from regurgitating information all over again for yet another new member. If someone would please be so kind as point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

3D, there is a recent thread entitled "Bulk Soil", you might start there. Sounds like that discussion may be what you are looking for, at least for a start.

Thank you!

RE: New guy

I think I would start here. Seems there is a garden club you can join and the demo garden sounds like a good place to learn a lot.

Here is a link that might be useful: Yuma demonstration garden

RE: New guy

Thanks Tomatofreak! I actually had a chat with a member of this club a while back. Really nice person too. They are sort of hard to catch up to because they mainly meet on Tuesdays in the mornings all the local garden clubs meet around that same time it seems...Im guessing the groups must be mainly comprised of people in retired status. If I can ever get time off, I'd like to pick their brains. I'll bet there's some good knowledge there. Thanks for the link!
