I want to grow a few vegetables in summer. I live in Highlands Ranch, Denver and the soil is clayey. What type of plants can I grow and when do I start? My garden is south facing. The gardening area is not quite large but sufficient to make a small vegetable patch. Thank you.

Because you have clay soil, you will need to amend it some to make it better for vegetables (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/how-to-improve-clay-soil.htm).
