My name is Jannine and I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico where the growing season is short, the altitude is 7000 feet high, the soil very alkaline, miserably hard and lacking organic materials. It is considered to be a high desert but Santa Fe is located at the base of the Sangre De Cristos mountains and below a ski area. It is in a Zone 5 growing season. So to say it is challenging growing things here is an understatement. I am an organic grower. This past year I became a Master Gardener here in Santa Fe to expand my 25 years of growing experience and knowledge and I want to share it with the public. I’m no expert, but I’d like to share what I’ve learned and picked up through the years as well as share this season’s gardening as it unfolds.
