‘Staged’ Container Gardening at High Altitude

Hi Everyone,

I am a newbie to gardening. We have tried many things in the last few years, with little success.

I am a prepper and you can only store so much food reasonably, check out how to store food long term. This stuff is neat and makes you feel better, but nothing is better than a fresh harvest!

If you are a regular viewer/reader you know we live in a pretty unique area; 9000 ft elevation in the Colorado Rockies. The growing season is pretty short.

So, I have been doing quite a lot of research and I am going to try a series of small container ‘gardens’ of veggies that grow very fast;  Radish, Lettuce, and Carrots!

Another nice thing about this approach is it is easy to keep away from the local enemy #1; the rabbit hole!

I plan on doing this same thing every two weeks:

I am hoping if I stage them like this we will have just enough to use before the next one is ready.  This is the first shot, so wish me luck!

More to come as I get some results, good or bad.
