Hi. We just moved to New Mexico last Spring and we live in the East Mountain area, outside of Albuquerque. Does ANYONE know what vegetables I might be able to start and how soon?? I really would love to have a small garden, as watering is a bit of an issue in this desert. I also would like a few colorful flowers. Any help or computer links to sites that might help would be so appreciated. Thanks in advance!! Happy Spring as of Thursday, which is suppose to reach a high of 68 degrees for us.

I live in Florida, but usually in every county in the U.S. there are County Agricultural Extension Agents who can advise you. They should also have printed material with information about the gardening in your area. Good luck! Look in the phone book under State of New Mexico...

So very true desert sun.

Thanks plant lover. I will let my fingers do the walking in the yellow book and on the computer keys. I guess I was just hoping for a master gardener that lived in Edgewood and could advise. I'm just kidding. My father in law is a master gardener, but lives in New York State. He has no clue on desert gardening . . . yet.
