“Growing Food in the High Desert County” is a comprehensive gardening book with emphasis on growing vegetables. The author seeks to help the high desert dweller cope with the problems of raising plants in a dry land. From practical experience, she learned that her familiar East coast gardening techniques were not suitable to the high country so she developed the special methods given in this book. In addition to vegetables, Ms. Weinberg discusses various aspects of fruit tree culture in the high desert and drought-tolerant perennials, shrubs and trees. A special chapter on common garden pests tells how to control them without the use of commercial pesticides. JULIE BEHREND WEINBERG studied organic horticulture and agriculture at Goddard College. She has written weekly garden columns for both the “Santa Fe Reporter” and “The Santa Fe New Mexican.”
