What should I plant in March in my High Desert garden?

For High Desert planters, this is what I suggest:

Bean, bush Bean, lima beet, Cantaloupe, Carrot, Chard, sweet corn, Cucumber, leaf lettuce, spring peas, Pepper, Irish seed potato, Radish, Rhubarb, Rutabaga, Spinach, Summer squash, Tomato plant, Turnip, Watermelon

Some of these might need some protection if a frost hits so pay attention!  This would include squash, tomatoes, peppers and melons.  The rest should do fine with bad weather for the most part.  Some straw wouldn’t hurt and neither would some plastic, or a milk jug.

See how the bottom of the milk jug greenhouse is cut off? Place directly over seeds/seedling an take the lid off to allow air movement.
