One of the many pluses of living in Arizona is that there are 2, count'em 2, growing seasons. So after some research, cuz that what I do, we planted our first garden. Other than a half-assed attempt at basil on the window sill, I haven't grown something you can eat. Hope our green beans, carrots and cucumbers actually grown and are edible. I know, I'm asking a lot of my somewhat green thumb.
