Urban Farm Company helps locals plant right & harvest lots
If you are a Front Range gardener planning to grow some or even all of your own produce this summer, tap into Urban Farm Company of Colorado’s wisdom. They have developed guidelines on what to plant where in your garden (including which veggies tolerate shade), reminding us that crop rotation is a beneficial practice.
Did you know, for instance, that because of Colorado’s strong UV, the company says, “We’ve found that five hours is more than enough to grow almost every vegetable that we offer. Because UV is strongest in the middle of the day, a 2-3 hours of sunlight in the middle of the day is better than 3-5 hours of light in the late afternoon or early morning. With locations that receive less than five hours of light per day, we suggest planting Low-Light Crops.”
Take a look at their visual about these crops.
Urban Farm has available blog posts about the most problems with Colorado garden soils and how to deal with them, composting, mulching, watering, garden pests, why your tomatoes aren’t turning red and more.
The company is not just dispensing free advice but is in business too. They will set up backyard gardens for maximum yield and then let home-owners take it from there to harvest their own fresh veggies all season long. Click here for pricing, or FoMoInfo, call 970-658-0667.
