Description

Legumes have evolved with wonderful survival mechanisms that make them beneficial and easy-to-grow plants in low desert gardens. Many legumes are able to 'fix' nitrogen, changing it to a useable form that their roots can absorb. There are many legumes grown in the Americas that have enriched the world, both ornamentally and in cooking. Legumes are second only to grasses in providing a vital food source for many animals, including humans. We will explore the diversity of legumes and the many varieties of local desert legumes that can be planted any season in your vegetable garden.
