I grew up on hardpan. My relatives say that I have “dirt in my blood.” Nonetheless, when I moved to the High Desert, I found living and gardening on caliche to be a new experience. As I started to learn a new dimension to gardening, I felt the need to connect with others who also garden or farm in the Mojave Desert. I started this blog to both reach out to the local gardening community and to share my gardening experiences with others. More importantly, I wanted to learn from gardeners who have experience gardening on caliche soils in the High Desert.
After I retired in spring of 2015, I began to expand the topics that I wanted to share with others. I have no idea where this blogging journey will lead me.
