Gardening: Vegetables in Wyoming (Publication #B-1115)
Gardening serves purposes such as providing sources of food, exercise, and maybe even profit for many people. Wyoming gardeners have a special challenge because of the short growing season and varying temperatures along with untimely frosts, steady and high winds, hailstorms, poor soils, and low humidity. Vegetable gardening tips included in this publication provide information on crop selection, soil preparation, and irrigation. A section on planning a vegetable garden discusses areas for long-term crops, spacing, and cool and warm-variety vegetables along with site preparation tips, planting tips, and general care tips.
