Gardening in Denver

Anonymous added on February 10, 2014 | Answered

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.

What you grow is up to you. Most vegetables will grow where you are. 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).
