Penny and I were able to go on the Real Gardens for Real people tour again. I love this tour. Most of the gardens are at people's homes. They have all completed the master gardener program through the U of A. This time, they were all in the East valley. My favorite was the first one we went to. It was on about a half acre. It was beautiful, but most everything was something to eat. The front walk area was lined with a grape arbor. There were raised beds with vegetables all around the front and side.
In the back corner, was this awesome area designed specifically for their Sonoran Desert tortoises. It was also quite pretty.
They had a chicken coop desigened to look just like the main house. All along the back and sides were all kinds of fruit trees.
