I moved to my new home in the Central Valley, last June. Set up sq. ft garden with some success. Herbs did well, Japanese eggplant, and the Italian green peppers were ridiculous. Tomatoes and zucchini not so good. An experienced friend pointed out, it's all about location and timing. Soo, plan to relocate boxes to the unshaded side of the yard and start early. Wish me luck.

Hello...Welcome...and yes, of course, Good Luck!!@alycesuzanne wrote:Wish me luck. Al
Fresno has a bit drier climate than we have here in Modesto but overall we grow the same things.
Your friend was right about the location...sunshine is best! You can always add a shade cloth over the top to protect during the heat of the day in mid Summer...but ya just can't point that sunshine!
Great to have you here!
