Inspiring Urban (Rental) Homestead in the Desert

Urban Homestead Grows Fruits, Vegetables & Animals in the Desert

John Kohler visits and tours a Las Vegas rental property, sharing tons of clever ideas for growing in less than ideal climate and circumstances. I cannot believe how much food this guy has growing in a small place! Whenever I’ve visited Las Vegas, I’ve felt assaulted by the arid heat. This little duplex must feel like a complete oasis in the desert, and you’d never know how much he has going on there just looking at the front of the house. Definitely worth a watch if you live in the desert or somewhere “too hot to grow anything.” I enjoyed it even though I no longer live in the desert, in part because I once tried gardening in Northern New Mexico and gave up when I realized what an “impossible” task it would be. If you know what you’re doing … or even if you’re willing to experiment … you can do just about anything these days. πŸ™‚

    • Wonderful and happy homemaking in your new place! You will love gardening. Glad I could help point you in some easier directions than just trying standard approaches that often don’t work in the desert. Are you in Flagstaff now? Or Sedona/Cottonwood? I forget where you specifically said you were moving. I’m thinking maybe Cottonwood for some reason. In any case, hugs and cheers for your new abode! Laura

    sharing from a post by Laura Bruno, thanks Laura! Since i have moved to the desert this post came at a really great time for me since I want to begin to learn how I can do an organic garden. It will be my first time trying my hand at gardening and with the challenges of where I live, it offers some ingenious ideas. Loving it!!



  3. Laura I’m in Cottonwood. You’re thinking right πŸ™‚ Good memory. YAY!
