hello i was just wondering if anyone had anyadvice for turning the desert into a garden on my little fob in afghanistan.  I am here for a year with the army and wantedto garden in my spare time.  The ground is really rocky and sandy.  I dont have access to anything other than what i have here on the fob.  I have access to all the vegetable scraps from the kitchen if i scrounge for them and was wondering if i could use that to ammend the soil if i compost it.  Just looking for some help thanks

Well being from Scotland I have no experience of gardening in such conditions! At a guess I'd imagine succulents would do pretty well in those conditions. Though if you are able to enrich the soil and water daily you might be able to try some some other stuff.

Sorry I couldn't be more help but I couldn't leave your post abandoned!
