The Q&A Archives: High Altitude Gardening

Question: I am going to start my first garden at high altitude in Colorado since my move from Georgia a few years back.
1) What major differences should I plan besides waiting until our last snow in April?

2) Any special fertilizers I need to 'till' into place (I know there has never been one here before in the yard)


Tomatos, Cucumbers, Zuchinni, Cantalope
Habeneros, Jalapenos, Cayennes, Sweet Bananas (Love those Mason Jars!!!!)

3) What recommended order (east/west facing) should I plant these? As I usually hear the vines
like the morning sun east side.

Answer: fun!fun!
