Yuma Arizona is at the corner of the desert southwest. Home to the cactus, ocotillos, saguaros, prickly pears, and our favorite the one and only, tumbleweeds. Yes, Yuma is a desert town. She is mostly cover in sand. She is the worlds the sunniest city!
Yuma would be a complete desert if it wasn’t for the Colorado river and Gila river running through her. Starting a garden in Yuma, AZ is just completely difficult. Is it?
So we are in the middle of summer and the sun is beating down hard on us in the southwest desert while monsoon is ready to strike us anytime any moment without notice. And you have an idea you want to start a vegetable garden in the middle of this war.
Living in Arizona has given me great pleasure because in Yuma, zone 10a I can grow my vegetables that other places can’t grow until spring has arrived. USDA Hardiness Zone
