California High desert Gardening

I live in Barstow, California. We're located in the high desert, on the way to Vegas. There isn't much vegetation out this way. Last year I tried to start a little patio garden. But, either the ground squirrels ate them or the heat dessicated them. This year I was to take another crack at growing some veggies and herbs but am at a loss as to what might thrive out here. I've been looking for resources but coming up empty handed. Could anyone recommend some books or sites?See More
