Harvest

This is just a taste of what you can grow in and around Tucson. There are many arid adapted plants that bear fruit, including this Cereus fruit (left) and Prickly Pear tunas (right). You can also grow very productive gardens year round and control your water use with a variety of irrigation methods. Contact me for tips on harvesting desert goodies or growing your own food in your backyard. It's fun and rewarding any way you go!
