DC Ranch News-March 2016

2016-03-26_1343Gardening in the desert can be difficult, but the best way to start a vegetable garden is with a plan! The best way to start is with orderly planting and keeping in mind that plants grow at different speeds. Begin by dividing your garden plot into nine squares of about a foot in size. Plant your most long-lasting plant in the center square, Italian basil makes a good choice for this. Next, in the corners plant your smallest and shortest vegetable seeds, such as radishes and carrots. Plant eggplant and a pepper in the other corners, but only one in each corner because they need plenty of root space. Lastly, onions, tomatoes and more carrots will do well in the remaining middle squares. Planting your vegetable garden on a grid is a great way to use space wisely and get your garden started.

If you don’t have space for a backyard garden, then consider leasing an irrigated, organic garden plot at the DC Ranch Community Garden at Copper Ridge School. For more information, contact Senior Facilities Manager Beth Overton at 480-538-3583 or beth.overton@dcranchinc.com.
