OrganicGardener'sCompanion_WEBpresented by Jane Shellenberger

There are two distinctly different types of vegetables that we can grow in most parts of Colorado. Cool season vegetables like greens, broccoli, and potatoes like to start growing in cool spring temperatures and they love our cool nights. But warm season crops like tomatoes, peppers, most beans, and squash like warmer soil and air; they simply won’t grow well if started too early without protection.  Discover the different conditions preferred by different vegetables, plus techniques for creating better growing conditions in your garden. Jane Shellenberger is the publisher/editor of Colorado Gardener which she founded in 1997 and author of Organic Gardener’s Companion, Growing Vegetables in the West. A lifelong gardener who learned about plants from her botanist mother, she lives on a farmette west of Longmont.
