Chuck, We do appreciate your comments! We try hard to make the videos useful. Any topics you’d like us to cover in the future?

I live in Colfax. I have 3 raised beds, appx 4 x 10 ft x 14” high. I’m looking for a better way to fence them in from deer, cats, etc. Previously, I had a system of 6’ stakes, set
5’ apart and connected by chicken wire, mounted in “c” type clamps to allow each section to be removed and put back. These worked, but the chicken wire cut the heck out of my arms. I could stand it, but now I’m older and the skin not quite so durable.
do you have any suggestions of what I can buy from you to improve this?

Thanks,........Ted Huss 530.346.6918, Shady Glen Estates, Colfax.

Any tips for those of us who live in super hot dry summer areas in Cali? I live in Napa and I have never had success direct sowing seeds for fall. It’s just too hot. If they do germinate, they shrivel up by the time I get home from work to water them. I have had success sowing them indoors under grow lights, but you can’t do that with carrots beets, etc…

Danielle, you can use some shade cloth to help keep them a little cooler. Also mulch with straw or even compost (acts like a sponge) to help reduce water loss.

Danielle,  I agree with Suzanne.  I live in Arizona and it takes lots of mulch (I use woodchips on top of compost) and some plants need shade.  My tomatoes grow best under my orange tree.  Checkout some of the Arizona gardening videos on youtube.  There are people growing non desert plants in the desert with compost and 3 to 6 in layers of mulch.
