Growing Tomatoes in Colorado

It is possible to have great success at growing tomatoes in Colorado. As you know, I am not a professional gardener. I am a normal average Colorado backyard gardener just like many of you who read here. In most years, I have grown my vegetables and flowers on a budget, some years more lean than others. Because of my budget, I have had to learn how to grow a great tomato without breaking the bank.

Growing tomatoes in Colorado is similar to growing tomatoes in other states, but there are five unique concerns that I think should be addressed. That is why I have published another Handy Dandy Gardening Guide: Growing A Great Tomato for Colorado gardeners.

For a limited time, you can download the pdf for free by clicking here: Growing A Great Tomato. Be sure to share this with your Colorado gardening friends. They’ll be glad you did.

    Laura thank you on sharing your wisdom of tomatoe growing. I missed the article on sweet peas and am going to try my hand at these sweet smelling flowers any hints on those I should know about?
    Also dahlia growing here I have yet to try but am also this year. Do you grow these and if so do you have any suggestions? Such as do you remove the bulbs before each winter?

      Yes, you have to remove and store Dahlia bulbs. I only grow a few on the years that I do because it’s hard for me to have the time to dig them up and store them.
