On Assignment in Afghanistan
Me with a technician at field plots at Balkh University.
am on assignment in northern Afghanistan now but my readers will still be able
to follow the answers to my gardening questions here in the newspaper as well
as my blog. I will post more on Afghanistan as well. I am at 36 degrees north latitude right now. Las Vegas is also at 36 degrees north latitude and at a similar elevation so the climates are very similar. I have been tracking the weather in Las Vegas and day and night temperatures are similar right now. Weather here is dry and the plots behind me are irrigated or it would be desert back there. So keep the questions coming!
