Thank you for stopping by. My name is Kelyee (Kelly.) Welcome to zone 10a backyard vegetable, and herb gardening in the desert southwest.  As a child, I watched my mom grew her herbs and vegetables. I was fascinated by how plants grew.

Now, as an adult, I wanted to grow my own veggies and herbs for my family. Because nothing tastes better than home cooking with the stuff you grow.

And the memories when mom uses to make them, fresh from her garden. I wanted to follow in her footsteps.

Desert Garden, You can do it

My garden starts in the desert that doesn’t mean that you can’t do it. It just takes a little bit more patience and experiment. Hey, I did all the experimenting for you already. Just follow my lead and you’ll do just fine. If the Gila River and the Colorado River never met we would have been nothing but cactus, and sand.  I’m glad they did. ;D

I went through two years of watching my garden died and I had to replant every year especially my herbs that I worked so hard to keep alive, all gone.

My herbs are perennial. I learn that if I cover them up with sun shades they’ll live, sometimes thrives during the hot months. It’s like a light bulb going off in my head. That’s when I learned to cover them up from May every year until October.

Working Outdoors Has Its Toll

I love working outdoors and sitting there with my cup of tea or coffee in the morning but it takes a toll on my poor body.

I have aches and pain. Are you in chronic pain and would love to dull it a little? Pain always get me down, I can’t go weed, water, and plant new seedlings if I am in pain.

Why Start A Blog, Why not?

My goals are to help you grow your herbs and vegetables to your potential. Especially in the arid weather or anywhere. Follow my experience for fun and giggles. Take what you want to learn and laugh at what you want. I’m here to have fun. And that’s what it’s all about, FUN.

They host and maintain my website plus I could build my website through them. With all my research I found that this is cheaper.

I have always wanted to start a blog for a very long time. So, I stumble across, wealthy affiliate. Click ==>Wealthy Affiliate <== for more information.

I remembered my frustrations when I first started growing my greens and nothing grew and if it did, it would not last long enough for a good harvest. The weather and where you lives plays a part in growing fresh food. (Yeah I know it’s just common sense.) Not until I screw up a few times. See the learning experience!
