Market Gardening and Life at 7000 ft. in the Rockies of Colorado

"And God said, let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed after his kind, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good."

Spring is in the air and it's time to start planning the garden. Also time to start seeds indoors. We have started lots of flowers, herbs, and veggies this week including basil, thyme, sage, borage, four o'clocks, forget me nots, marigolds, hollyhocks, chiles, maters, and broccoli just to name a few. We get most of our seeds from a local Colorado seed bank called Botanical Interests. They are an heirloom, open pollinated, non g.m.o. specialty seed source that has countless varieties of plants that do well at Colorado elevations and climes. We get all our chile seeds from native seeds/s.e.a.r.c.h.. They are a seed bank specializing in native southwestern plants and heirloom varieties of the puebloan peoples and have several varieties of several crops that were collected at high altitude pueblos. Chile Alcalde and Chile Santo Domingo have worked well for us. Think global buy local.
