I have similar conditions on the East side of Albuquerque. I certainly am not doing everything correctly. In the past I’ve picked too late and haven’t pruned properly.

Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

Exactly. I live at 7200 ft elevation. Our summers are short. I don't plant
anything but peas before the end of May. I transplant 2ft tall tomatoes
grown in gallon pots into a raised bed up against the brickwork on the
south side of the house, and I usually have to cover them a couple times in
early June.
