John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ shares with you his top 8 favorite edible plants that he grew this summer with average temperatures of 100 degrees over the entire summer.
In this episode, John will take you around his backyard raised bed desert garden and share with you many fruiting crops, leafy green crops and even a tuber crop that can easily thrive in 100+ degree weather.
After watching this episode, you will learn some of the most heat tolerant vegetables and varieties you will want to grow in the hot summer or if you have high temperatures for sustained peroids of time.
While I do cover the varieties that perform well in the heat for me, this also takes into consideration my other gardening practices that are critical for your success in these extreme conditions:
1. proper watering
2. growing in high quality soil including rock dust, worm castings, compost with compost tea added. Healthier plants are more tolerant of external stressors (bugs, disease, weather, sun, etc)
