This spring I want to plant a garden with tomatoes, jalapenos, etc. When is a good time to start planting the garden? Should I start it as early as February or March?

Also, since it is so hot here should I not plant it in direct sunlight all the time? Should it be in a shady spot half the day?

Any tips would be appreciated, thanks!

EDIT: Ps. I know there is a Garden forum, but I need to know how to do it in the Phoenix area!

Here are 2 good sites to assist you in the Phoenix areas.
If you're new to the areas growing needs then I'd suggest short dated growth tomatoes such as the popular 90 day developing Early Girl tomatoe.
As soon as you see transplants in the Garden Centers, then it's time to prepare and get started growing.

Contrary to what is thought gardening in Arizona is very easy and doable. If you do a little reserach you should be able to find a good planting guide. If the planting guide says that you can only plant tomatos in January throw that a way, tomatos can be planted in AUGUST!! Thats right August. Mod Cut: No links with less than 10 posts...
