Leslie, you'll find that in your garden you'll have successes and failures
and may not predict ahead of time which will be what. When something does
spectacularly well, take advantage and put it up (can, freeze, dehydrate,
save seeds) as best you can. Since you live in the desert, you can probably
dehydrate food well in the summer. An example of an unexpected change from
year to year is that we had tons of fruit this year, but last year we didn't
have any due to the freeze on the East Coast. You never know what next
year's garden will be like. Just keep plugging along. I'm a puppy on the Big
Dog path of gardening, but even I continue to make progress.
