High Altitude Gardening - Knowledgebase Question

Colorado Springs, CO
Question by LarryJordan

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)

Crops:

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.
