I am even shyer online than in person, so writing this is not easy! I own a 50 year old house in Tempe, about a mile from ASU, not irrigated. In front, have removed Bermuda, mostly, and have gravel, fruit trees, old roses and raised beds with mixed vegs, herbs, and flowers. This past winter, wrapped the front, south facing, with greenhouse film that covered the raised beds and front porch. Had greenhouse and passive solar heating. It worked really well, but looked awful (one friend kept muttering about Hazmat abatement) Just got 4 Americana chicks 6 weeks ago, hopefully all pullets. The backyard is a disaster, dead grass, dirt, and dog manure.
