edibles in the desert

edibles in the desert

I'd like to start a small potted vegetable garden. I live in Phoenix, and I don't get much sun in the house, so it will have to be in my backyard/on my back porch. I'm new at gardening in general and am terrified I'll go all out only to kill everything. Does anyone have good resources (websites, books, stores) to recommend for growing veggies in the desert? Especially if they're in Phoenix.
