In the desert your garden is probably vegetable nirvana for every creature with a taste for greens. I can't guess what manner of pests you might have.

Does AZ have shrews?

There are different grades of produce and the higher grades or premium produce cost more and are of better quality. A lot also depends on the store and their employees, proper handling and knowledge goes a long way with how the final product looks and taste.

We live in Las Vegas, NV. We discovered a grocery store called Cardena's. It's geared toward Hispanic folks and english isn't the primary language. The produce is KILLER! Fresh and inexpensive. Country of origin clearly posted (with "USA" prominently displayed). I loaded a Spanish/American dictionary on my Android to aid in the shopping. I love it!

Join a CSA. Then you get local grown, organic, wonderful produce that you can eat, dehydrate, freeze or can. Good food takes a little effort.
