What to Plant Now (in a Tucson Raised Bed Vegetable Garden)

It’s April and you want to grow some veggies! There are some things to consider. I mention in this the Three Sisters planting arrangement and I’ll put a link below so you can research it further – I’ll only mention that in a raised bed you don’t need to arrange the plants in a furrow or mound – flat soil is fine. https://www.nativeseeds.org/blogs/blog-news/how-to-grow-a-three-sisters-garden

Lastly, there are a lot of great resources available to you for details on how much space each plant requires, their water needs etc. The seed packets, the website of the seed company, talking to your friends like me, great books on desert gardening, your local nursery.

Really lastly, here’s a link to a Garden Planting calendar you will like, on the excellent Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond website: https://www.harvestingrainwater.com/plant-lists-resources/garden-planting-calendar-for-tucson/
