Thank you for your question.

Did you want to start from seed or buy established plants?

I would like to start from seed, but if you have plant suggestions, that would also be helpful.


Knowing the average first frost date in your area will help you calculate when to plant these late vegetables.

For El Paso County the average last frost date percentages are listed on this page: https://cmg.extension.colostate.edu/Gardennotes/743.pdf

Below is a link provided by the University of Minnesota that will assist you in choosing the vegetables you would prefer to grow.
