    I really enjoyed your crafter’s profile in the Tucson Green Magazine. It’s an inspiration. I saw your goal list, including the item to start a garden in April. I wanted to say that here in Tucson, April may be a bit late for starting. Your seedlings may not be strong enough to withstand May’s intense heat. If you’re interested in local gardening, the Community Gardens of Tucson has a planting calendar that might help you decide what to put in and when. Here is our website:
    Send me an email and I’ll forward you a PDF of our newsletter, complete with the aforementioned planting calendar (Alas, it is not available on the website).
