I live in San Miguel de Allende in the Bajio region of central Mexico. It is a locvely colonial city right smack in the center of Mexico. We are in the high desert at an altitude of just over 6000 feet and we get about 25 inches of rain per year. 90% of that rain falls in June July and August. The averege highs range from the low 70s to the high 80s and the agerage lows range from right around freezing to the high 60s.
While this sounds like almost perfect weather for people it turns out that I am having a hard time finding a lot of vegitables that like it. The main problem is the 8 months a year with little or no rain. Landscaping is not a big problem - I just use a lot of Agave, suculents and cactus. Growing tomatos is a whole other situation. Especially since our soil is very alkaline and tomoto virus is prevelant .
Bottom line is I joined this group to learn. Hopefully there are others in my situation or who know enough to comment on ways to help me in my quest for a tasty tomato in Mexico.
Technically the climat is called the 'High Tropical
