It has been many years, more that 20, since I have gardened and the first time in Denver, it will be a small patio garden, it's kind of divided into 3 areas, one smaller area is filled with rocks and really bad soil so I'm planning raised beds, then the patio area where I'll use containers, and then another area where my kids are hopefully going to rototiller up, where I'm planning a more traditional garden area, I've like to try my hand at some vertical gardening I'm not sure what to put where yet, I want to plant things like salad fixings, lettuces, greens, cucumbers, no peppers or tomatoes or peppers as I can't eat nightshade plants, I have Fibromyalgia, I also want to plant shallots, summer and winter squash, beets, I'd like to do cabbage since I like to ferment it, but probably not this year, and herbs, and maybe flowers, mint is already growing prolifically despite freezing temps and snow, I didn't plant it. I don't need a lot of these as it's just me, but I also want to be able to share as I live in a low income area, and I know every little bit helps that why I'm doing this. I don't know if I will be able to plant as much as I want as I'm on a small fixed income, and I'll need to get some kind of soil for planting in the container and raised beds. I'm sure my soil will need help so I've already started composting, I'll probably see if my grandsons can dig me up some worms, I've been saving containers to start seeds, and to use for planting. So that's me please any ideas or tricks are welcome, I've got some cool weather seeds, that I'd like to start this weekend I think they should be safe, as our last frost/freeze can be as late as mothers day.
