Growing produce in the summer in the middle of desert isn't easy but the folks at the Roosevelt Growhouse know a thing or two about it. Local artists Kenny Barrett and Kelley Placke had been living in an oversized and under-loved house on the corner of Garfield and Sixth streets when they decided to head outside and work the soil. It turned into a pretty big project and with the help of friends, volunteers and community members, they've turned the entire front, side and back yards into a flourishing garden. The growing cycle kicks off in August with fertilization and planting of seeds and wraps up just before things get too darn hot when they plant summer corn, which is hearty enough to grow through the hot season.
