AUTHOR

Welcome to Successful Gardening in Utah!

What stops you from loving your garden?

Weeds, bugs, water bills, struggling plants, stunted harvests, expensive fixes—these are the things that stop many people from growing more of their own food.

Gardening in Utah is unlike gardening almost anywhere else. We face unique challenges, but there are simple solutions that can turn your garden from a weed-infested burden to a source of health, food, and joy. If your garden feels like a burden, you are not likely to keep it up. On top of which, you are not likely to teach your children the skills they will need to love growing their own food.

Let’s examine, one by one, the unique challenges that can derail any Utah garden if you don’t know the tips and tricks needed for success here. This book will give you specific solutions for every unique growing challenge in our beautiful desert state.

Most summer rainstorms last ten minutes or less, and rain falls heavily, which can give people the false impression that it’s a good summer rain. But by digging down a couple of inches, it is clear that the rain has failed to penetrate. The top inch or two are damp, and the soil below that is bone dry (especially in areas not watered with a sprinkling
