Farmer's markets would be a great place to start. Farmers LOVE to talk about their craft. Just say, 'Hey these look great! How do you keep 'em alive in this crazy heat?'


You'll get an earful. Once you open up a dialog, lots of cool things can happen!

Sometimes your local extension service has recommendations for what grows well in your area as well.

Where I live my local extension service put us in touch with a gardening club that had a wealth of info for our area.

We are kind of on the other end of the spectrum though, rutabagas and kale are summer crops here, lol.

Good luck with your garden friend.

Excellent, thanks for the advice TastyBeverage. I'll see when they're getting started up locally and see about getting in contact with some other growers. Would be good for the head too, been reclusive for months struggling with PTSD, might be good to get in touch with real people. The internet has been a safe haven, though not a "tangible" world per se.


Juthro, heh yeah I was in an area like that in 2013. Native to the desert though, got fed up with the crazy people and constant moisture in the PNW. I do miss it something fierce though. Was really an awesome area to live. But, with the desert comes interesting challenges and it also open up the grow season to a much more broad time frame to achieve excellent crops, edible and otherwise. Thanks for the luck and stopping by!

So, one of the avocados I have going is showing rust colored spots sporatically on a couple of the leaves. In cannabis this typically indicated a cal/mag deficiency. Is it unreasonable to assume these symptoms are unanimous across all varieties of plants? Or should I be considering other potential causes? Initially I thought it was nitrogen toxicity due to the end of one of the leaves appearing burnt. This happened a month ago though and the spots showed up between yesterday and today.







EDIT: added photos.
