I am helping a friend with a vegetable garden in Baja, Mexico in La Paz. The soil looks good but I wanted to know if this desert climate needs any particular nutrients. They live right on a river bed. I think they should be able to grow melons in the sandy soil next to the river, but the garden spot up hill is my first question. Also, are any berries adaptable to this climate? I know the intense summer heat will not be an option for any vegetables.

Your best bet for this type of climate would be growing plants in raised beds or containers. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/vgen/raised-vegetable-gardens.htm
