Golden Valley Arizona

In Golden Valley Arizona we're at 2,805 feet in elevation, with temps that get over 100 degrees and average winds of 11.8 miles per hour. Which basically means that as an outdoor grower, I need to get my roots deep, shore up my branches and keep them hydrated over the scorching summers.

There's also squirrels, desert rats and rabbits that'll tear your plants up real quick too! I've had to deter pests with chicken wire, plus half inch and quarter inch screen.
