Watering a Garden in the Desert

A while back a reader contacted me in search of information about gardening in the dry Southwest. Watering a garden in the desert isn’t something we hear much about.

Food for FEMA?

Today I pose what may be considered by some to be strange and disturbing questions. Would you grow food for FEMA or DHS if it meant staying alive?
