4-Letter Friday: FREE Fun in Las Vegas

eXp Realty

Now that the mercury routinely hits 80 every day, it’s time for Las Vegas and Henderson gardeners to get busy. I personally am trimming my peach, nectarine, apple and lemon trees and painting their trunks Caribbean colors to keep the worms out of the fruit. But I digress.

Early Spring Blooms...peach trees

My peach tree.


I’ve lived in five states in America and no place has the worst soil and the best fruit and vegetable growing conditions than the Las Vegas desert. My tree branches break they have so much fruit–and I thinned the crop as required. Gardening is fun here because you can actually grow things you can eat…although I think I have my peaches down to $200 a pound. But hey, it’s fun. And I’m saving the planet, right?

Don’t know how to grow fruits and vegetables in the desert? That’s where 4-Letter Friday comes in. The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension has a FREE hands-on lecture on how to plant fruits and vegetables in Las Vegas. It’s tomorrow at 9 at Acacia Park in deepest Henderson.

The experts will teach you:

  • What peach trees to buy (dwarf or full size)
  • How to amend the soil
  • How to prune properly
  • What to sing to your trees (Alright, I made that up. But I do sing disco to my trees. “It’s Raining Men...” Just don’t tell anybody, OK?)

I love it when June comes around and I get to give all my friends fresh, organic peaches from my tree. I even let them come over and pick the fruit themselves. Now you can learn how to have a green thumb in Las Vegas….FREE.
