Well the cooler weather has finally arrived in Arizona and its planting time. This will be my first real attempt at container gardening. Ironically my bio states that my Grandmother raised tomatoes in the winter in Minnesota in containers. Well I shall do the same in Arizona. It’s funny too that the growing season here in Arizona is almost the opposite of that in the Midwest. We do have to watch out for midwinter freezes though (yes it does freeze in Arizona), but this makes container gardening ideal as I only have to move the pots under the cover of my balcony.

One cool thing I’ve noticed more of this year are biodegradable planting pots. They are made of peat moss and can be placed directly in the soil. This is not only better for the environment but better for the plants as well because the root systems do not get disturbed during transplanting.
Until the next time, Happy Gardening!
